Migration Patterns in Mixed Cities in Israel: Socioeconomic Perspectives 21.05.2023

A new study by the Taub Center examines patterns of migration within Israel from 2017 until 2020 in eight mixed cities in Israel by migrants’ socioeconomic status and their impact on changes in the social fabric of cities. The findings testify to changes in the size and composition of the population, both ethnically and socioeconomically. In Jerusalem and Ramla, the population of Arabs has increased, while in Lod, the Jewish population has increased. External migration in Nof HaGalil increased the Arab population in the city at an annual rate of 4.5%. In the majority of mixed cities, Jews tend to live in areas with higher socioeconomic standing than the Arab population. An exception to this is Nof HaGalil where there is more similarity between the Jewish and Arab populations in terms of socioeconomic standing, and the patterns of migration indicate a possible improvement in the overall socioeconomic status of the city in the future.
