Changes in Population Groups – Demographic Effects
Author: Yaakov Kop
August 31, 2000
we have identified several ethnic blocs in Israeli demography, the proportional size of which has usually been stable despite occasional fluctuations. Both types of elements, stable and variable, are strongly affected by the differential action of the two basic factors—migration and natural increase. Another source of demographic influence in the Jewish sector is its unique age structure, which has created a cyclical growth pattern that has implications both for demography and for the social services. Additional factors beyond those reviewed in this chapter, as well as social interaction among the blocs, are discussed at length in the topical chapters of this publication.
