Country Profiles, Israel.
Population Council, New York, NY.
A profile of Israel is sketched in this paper. Emphasis is placed on the nature, scope, and accomplishments of population activities in the country. Topics and sub-topics include: location and description of the country; population--size, growth patterns, immigration patterns, differentials in growth, age structure, rural/urban distribution, economic status, literacy, future trends; population growth and socioeconomic development--national income, labor force, immigration and defense; history of population concerns; population policies; and population/family planning programs. Summary statements indicate that because Israel is a country of immigrants, there are substantial gaps in socioeconomic status and in standards of living. This is due in part to three factors: origin, duration of stay in Israel, and educational achievement. Thus, economic difficulties have curtailed development of family planning services. A map of the country is drawn and statistical data, tables and charts are given. (BL)
