Population Data

Israel’s population was extracted from the statistical yearbooks published on the country’s Central Bureau of Statistics website.

Using historical trends, and assuming the current activity prevails, we were able to establish a reasonable expectation for predicting future population values. Our population projections are based on two projection models: The Monte Carlo simulation model and the Autoregression Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) models.

Israel’s metropolitan areas are derived from the country’s established districts and subdistricts.

In addition to the LMI data mentioned here Lightcast also offers insights through Global Worker profiles in Israel.

Labor Market Information (LMI) Data

We obtained Labor market information (LMI) for Israel from the government’s Labor Force Survey (LFS) published on the official Central Bureau of Statistics. The occupation classification used in Israel is a variant of the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-08). Using industry data and occupation data from the Central Bureau of Statistics, with the addition of a European-based staffing pattern derived from Belgium, we form employment estimates for each ISCO 4-digit occupation.

When creating the occupation supply projections, we took the expected population growth rate from the models mentioned above and applied that same growth rate across the LMI in each Israel’s districts. Once we had the projections, we mapped the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-08) to Global Occupations.
