Statistical Yearbook ‘Children in Israel’
Since 1991, the National Council for the Child publishes an updated and detailed statistical yearbook every year that includes 15 chapters on a variety of fields related to the lives of children in Israel. Each year, the NCC grants its first copy of the ‘Children in Israel’ yearbook to the President of the State of Israel in a festive ceremony, and in the presence of the NCC’s team and youth.
Our investment in the collection of data and publication of updated and detailed information on the various fields relating to children and youth derives from the recognition that ‘knowledge is power’.
The yearbook is the only comprehensive source of information about children and youth in Israel. As such, it allows the identification of trends, uncover ongoing obstacles and challenges, and extract correlations for the last three decades. Ultimately, the yearbook allows the NCC and relevant stakeholders to initiate and propel actions to protect the safety and rights of children and youth.
The yearbook’s chapters refer to, among others, demographic data regarding children in Israel, children and their families, education, children with disabilities, health, finance, juvenile justice, child victims of crime, children at risk and child protection, and more. The yearbook combines extensive data by location, population groups, gender, age, and various trends, collected from a wide variety of sources.
