Demographics of Jerusalem's Post-1967 Neighborhoods

Following the publication of statistics on the population figures for the Jews resident in Judea and Samaria as per this report

The complete West Bank Jewish Population Stats report was released today with data updated to January 1, 2017. The report is available to the public in English via the mailing list at the West Bank Jewish Population Stats website.

The West Bank Jewish Population Stats report is compiled each year by Former Member of Knesset Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz based on precise data from the population registry in Israel’s Ministry of the Interior. As of January 1, 2017, according to the report, 420,899 Jews live in West Bank towns, not including the some 300,000 Jewish residents of the eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem, which are technically part of the West Bank as well.

I rechecked sources for Jerusalem.

I added up all the neighborhoods post-67 at the Jerusalem Yearbook for end of 2014.

Neveh Yaakov 21,260
Pisgat Zeev N. 18,500
Pisgat Zeev E. 22,150
Ramat Shlomo 15,070
Ramat Alon N. 26,320
Ramat Alon S. 17,783
Ramot Eshkol/Givat Mivtar 11,190
Givat Shapira 7,950
E. Talpiot 14,020
Har Shlomo 18,940
Gilo E. 19,250
Gilo W. 11,060
Jewish Quarter 2,900

The sum of those figures equals 204,390 at the end of 2014.

Missing may be Maaleh Hazeitim and Kidmat Tzion with Har Hazeitim. But that would be around 500 so let's round off at 205,000.

The average yearly growth of the Jewish population, found hereseems for past 5 years to be 1.42.

That would provide a total approximate figure of 208,000  Jews residing in the post-1967 Jerusalem neighborhoods which the Arabs and the UN declares territory slated for a future Arab state in the former area of the Palestine Mandate.



It is now being reported as "over 200,00" for Jerusalem
