Ahead of Israel’s celebration of its 73rd anniversary, the population of the Jewish state stands at 9,327,000, the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) announced.
Overall, the population increased by some 137,000 people since 2020, amounting to a 1.5% increase.
In 1948, when the Jewish state was established, the population of Israel numbered 806,000 people.
Since then, 3.3 million have immigrated to Israel, about 44.7% of them arriving since 1990.
Israel’s population is also young, the CBS said — 28.1% of the population is aged 0-14, and only 12% is aged 65 and over.
