Data from Stage B of the Population and Housing Census 1961: Labour force characteristics (weekly) and employed persons, by economic branch, occupation and employment status

Jerusalem: State of Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, 1963. First edition. Softcover. 4to. ci, 237pp. Gray wrappers with black lettering on front and spine. Preface by R. Bachi, Government Statistician. Publication no. 9 from the Population and Housing Census of 1961, "provides detailed information on Labour Force Participation, Economic Branch, Occupation and Employment status." Provides ample maps, charts and diagrams on the demographics of Israel's labor force at the time of Israel's 2nd census after its creation in 1948. The charts provide data with special sections addressing men, women, specific occupations, the non-Jewish (predominantly Arab) population (137,000 aged 14 and over), and the Jewish population, subdivided into places of birth (Europe and America, Africa and Asia, and Israel), as well as waves of immigration (prior to 1947, 1947-1954, and after 1955). The data is gathered from a 20% population sample pool. A fascinating study of demographic and economic shifts across all of Israel's rapidly growing settlements within what will eventually be referred to as "the Green Line." Text and charts in English and Hebrew. Errata sheet attached at front. Corners bumped, slight creasing and small closed tears along spine. Former library stamp on front wrapper. Pages yellowed from age, but clean. Overall good condition. g. Item #22770
