CWN Editor's Note: Since 1949, the number of Christians in Israel has risen from 34,000 to more than 180,000; during the same time, the number of Muslims rose from 111,000 to 1.6 million, and the number of Jews rose from 1.17 million to 6.9 million.

According to the report, Christian families have fewer children under 18 (1.93 on average) than Muslim (2.60) or Jewish (2.43) families. Nearly 77% of Israel’s Christians are Palestinian Arabs, and Israel’s Christians are “the component with the highest average level of education, especially among the female part of the population.”
