This publication presents an updated and concise picture of Jerusalem and of the trends and changes in the city in a wide range of fields, including population, employment, education, tourism, and construction. In this edition, for the first time, a chapter on the Business and industry is included. Other relevant chapters also include new data showing, for example, satisfaction rates in different aspects of life, and matriculation eligibility by population sectors.
The principal source of the data found herein is the Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem, published annually by the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies and the Municipality of Jerusalem, with support from the Jerusalem Development Authority (JDA) and Leichtag Foundation (USA).
The data in the Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem are collected from numerous sources, particularly the Central Bureau of Statistics and the Municipality of Jerusalem. We would like to thank all those who provided those data for their much-appreciated contribution to both the Statistical Yearbook and this publication.
