Source: Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, Brookdale Institute

In 2001-2002, the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, in cooperation with local authorities, established neighborhood centers in 10 cities with large concentrations of Ethiopian-Israelis. The centers coordinate municipal services and promote the development of services and programs for these immigrants, while increasing cooperation among various agencies, pooling resources and fostering community support. The survey was sponsored by the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption and conducted by the Myers - JDC - Brookdale Institute. Its goals were to learn about the needs of these immigrants in a variety of areas, and to provide information inputs for the work of the centers. The population investigated was the Ethiopian-Israeli households in the neighbourhoods where the centers have been established. This report presents data from a survey conducted in three neighbourhoods in Ashdod. Altogether, data were collected from 693 families, representing 88.5% of the Ethiopian-Israeli families residing in these neighbourhoods. The data includes education details of family members, labour force participation details, health issues, welfare and other details. (N=693)

821. Labour Force Survey, 2007
Source: Israel Central Bureau of Statistics

The series of Labour Force Surveys (LFS) held by the ISDC includes all LFS datasets starting from 1967. The LFS is the principal survey of households conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics. The surveys follow the development of the labour force in Israel, its size and characteristics, the extent of unemployment and other trends. It is also a source of data on living conditions, mobility in employment, and modes of job seeking. The individual's record includes a few household details like family size and composition, housing density, domestic help and place of residence. It holds a full demographic profile of the respondent including country of birth and parents' country of birth, schooling information, immigration data, detailed labour force characteristics including hours of work, occupation, economic branch, employees hired through employment agencies or employment contractors and more. Quite a few items provide information on the unemployed such as duration of unemployment, last job before unemployment, modes of job seeking and discouraged workers. Women are also asked about fertility. The interviewers interview one of the household members from whom they receive information about him/herself and about the other members of the household.

A random sample of the survey population is generally drawn once a year. A small part of the sample population whose characteristics hardly change over time is covered by permanent samples taken from the 1995 Census.
Each household is investigated four times: investigations 1 and 2 are done during two consecutive quarters, and after a two quarter break the surveying pattern is repeated for investigations 3 and 4.

For panels in their first and last investigations - face-to-face interview. For panels in their second and third investigations - telephone interview (for households with a telephone) using Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI).
