Just A few Words on Demography

From ADVA Center:

The report’s authors, Dr. Shlomo Swirski and Etty Konor Attias, note that the number of settlement residents of the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria has grown significantly over these 20 years, and is up 240% – from 100,000 residents in 1991 to 360,000 as of 2012 [and it's over 400,000 now with over 200,000 in post-67 Jerusalem neighborhoods - YM]. In comparison, Israel’s population grew by 60% over that period.  Most of the settlement  growth of the population of the Yesha Jewish communities was concentrated in three ultra-Orthodox communities: Immanuel, Betar Ilit and Modi’in Ilit. These towns expanded by 375%. The population of non-Haredi settlements communities grew by 80% over the two decades examined.

I had to redact the Ha-Ha-Haaretz item.
