Since 1983, on an annual basis in advance of Jerusalem Day, the Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research publishes the Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem. The Yearbook includes detailed statistics on a wide range of issues relating to Jerusalem. The data are presented to readers by way of tables, diagrams, and maps, with the option of downloading data tables and conducting independent data processing. Jerusalem: Facts and Trends selects the key data from the Yearbook and makes it accessible through text and graphs. Its chapters are divided by topic, with each chapter presenting the current data and the emerging trends over time.
Jerusalem is the most populous, diverse, and multifaceted city in Israel. At the end of 2020 its population numbered 951,100, accounting for 10% of Israel’s total population. Jerusalem has the largest Jewish population in Israel, with 584,400 residents, as well as the largest Arab population in Israel, with 366,800 residents.
In 2019 Jerusalem had 331,200 salaried employees and 27,500 self-employed workers. The average monthly wage of salaried employees in Jerusalem was NIS 9,600, compared with NIS 11,500 in Israel at large. The average salary among men in Jerusalem (NIS 10,600) was 26% higher than the average salary among women (NIS 8,400).
In 2021 the average selling price of a 3.5-4 room apartment in Jerusalem was NIS 2,389,000, a 5% increase relative to 2020. This was higher than the figures for Israel (NIS 1,707,600, an 8% increase relative to 2020) and Haifa (NIS 1,430,300, a 4% increase), but significantly lower than the figure for Tel Aviv (NIS 4,011,200, a 13% increase).
The Covid-19 pandemic continued to have an impact in 2021. Of the visitors to Jerusalem in 2021, 84% were Israelis and 16% were foreign tourists. The year 2021 also marked an all-time record for the number Israeli guests at tourist hotels in Jerusalem.
