Israel's population reflects a unique combination of immigration and high fertility. Demographic trends impact Israel's regional and global political relations. This report examines Jewish fertility patterns and attitudes based on a 2005 national survey and compares actual, intended, and appropriate family sizes in different demographic, socioeconomic and cultural contexts. The effects of religiosity, personal attitudes, and social policies are explored.
