Health and education ranked as the highest priorities among the general population, while the economy reached fourth place in the terms of importance. In seven categories, non-Haredi Jews are most satisfied with their situation, and in three categories – community and social life, personal security and the environment – ultra-Orthodox are the most satisfied. The findings reveal many similarities in the preferences across all Jewish groups, which generally differ from the preferences of the Arab population.
In all areas covered by the survey, the Jewish populations rated their satisfaction higher than Arab participants.
The findings also indicate significant differences along gender lines, especially among the ultra-Orthodox. Among the ultra-Orthodox, the percentage of men who are satisfied with their situation is generally lower than that of women.
