People With Disabilities in Israel 2021: Facts and Figures

This booklet published by Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute and JDC-Israel Unlimited provides a comprehensive picture of people with disabilities in Israel.

It is based on in-depth exploration of a wide range of information sources in Israel and around the world – policy papers, surveys, and professional literature – as well as on requests for information from various bodies, including government ministries.

The booklet presents the most up-to-date data available, based on various definitions of disability and various levels of disability support and services. Some data have not been updated in recent years and some are based on estimates and assessments.
