Indicators of the Quality of Life in Jerusalem- A Subjective Assessment
Publication Year: 2019
The initiative to examine the quality of life in Jerusalem emerged from the conclusions of the study Migration to and from Jerusalem, conducted as part of the Marom Plan, a project for the economic development of Jerusalem. The study, which examined the characteristics of migrants and their reasons for leaving or moving to Jerusalem, found that the quality of life in the city is one of the reasons residents leave, on the one hand, but also a reason for moving to the city, on the other. Accordingly, quality of life as perceived by the city’s residents has a strong impact on the level of satisfaction with life in the city. It was therefore decided that the Jubilee Plan, a follow-up project to the Marom Plan, should address quality of life as an issue deserving of attention and assessment at the city level in order to explore and understand the significance and elements of the concept as well as the tools for measuring the quality of life in Jerusalem.
