Israeli Population Stands at 7,695,000 at End of 2010


yerushalayimThere are 7,695,000 people currently residing in Israel, according to a study by Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, released to mark the end of the first decade of the third millennium.

Of that number, 5,802,000 (75.4%) are Jewish, 1,573,000 (20.4%) are Arab and 320,000 (4.2%) are of other ethnicity.

The statistics show that the population in Israel has grown by 143,000 (1.9%) in 2010, a similar growth rate to the rest of the decade.

This year, Israel has absorbed some 16,000 immigrants, including some 6,000 who were born abroad to Israeli parents and moved to Israel for the first time. Another 4,000 people moved to Israel as part of a family reunification.

Another 11,000 Israelis who have been living abroad for more than 12 months were deducted from the total population.



  1. Does this figure already include the West Bank residents? If not where do these 1.6 millions arabs live? If yes, how many are from the West Bank and how many in mainland Israel?

  2. “Why dont they count the extra hundreds/thousands theat may be born over the next two days?” must rank as one of the stupidest questions ever asked in this forum.

    Why limit the unborn to those expected “over the next two days”, antiStatistics? Why not over the next two weeks or the next two months?

    When you are the head of the Central Bureau of Statistics in Israel then you can set the criteria. Until then keep your idiocy to yourself.
