March 17, 2016 03:06

Only 55 percent of Israelis – 49% of Arabs and 56% of Jews – believe their lives will improve in the coming years, according to a report the Central Bureau of Statistics released on Wednesday.

The report, “How’s life?” is the first of its kind issued by the government and aims to provide an all-encompassing picture of the state of Israeli society.

It was presented to the Knesset by Environmental Protection Minister Avi Gabbay; Prof. Avi Simhon, chairman of the National Economic Council; and Government Statistician Prof. Danny Pfeffermann.

In 2013, 86% of Israelis aged 20 and above were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with their lives – 89% of Jews and 73% of Arabs, according to the report.

Despite this impressive figure, only 55% of Israelis said their lives would improve in the next few years.
