‘Poverty rate in Israel high relative to developed countries’

The “depth of poverty” in Israel has worsened, with the average income of poor families in 2010 at 31 percent below the poverty line.

This was one of the findings of a study from the Jerusalem-based Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel to be released on Thursday.

The study, “A Picture of the Nation 2015,” presents a picture of Israel’s society and economy in a number of key areas: the cost of living, housing, inequality, the labor market, the shadow economy, the elderly population, education and health.
