We are pleased to present here the 26th edition of the Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem, a longtime collaboration between the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies (JIIS) and the Municipality of Jerusalem.
The Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem presents an up-to-date picture of life in Jerusalem – in tables, graphs, maps and other statistics, covering a wide range of topics. It also shows changes and trends that have taken place over time, as well as offering a comparison between Jerusalem and Israel, Tel Aviv-Yafo and Haifa; a separate chapter addresses the localities surrounding Jerusalem.
We would like to thank all those who took part in the preparation of the Yearbook, from the readers and users of past editions who offered insights and comments to our Steering Committee. Special thanks go to Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, the Jerusalem Development Authority and the Leichtag Foundation (USA), for their assistance and support in this project.
