Study of the Economic Level of the Arab Population in Israel

This project, performed under subcontract to Economic Models, studied the economic advancement and opportunities of the Arab population in Israel, which represent 20% of the population and 15% of the workforce. This study was based on the Income and Household Expenditure Survey of the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics. Findings showed that the average household income in the Arab sector is 57% lower than that of the majority population in Israel. Additional findings cited lower participation in the workforce and lower average education, both in terms of years and degrees. During the project, three major policy recommendations were made – increasing investment in education which will in turn give the Arab population greater opportunity to participate in the workforce (particularly Arab women), thereby reducing the wage differential between the majority and Arab populations. This study was presented at the Annual Herzlia Conference, widely considered to be the leading economic conference in Israel.
