According to the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies, the average birthrate of Jewish women in Jerusalem is 4.2 children, compared to 3.9 children.
In 1999, the birthrate was just 3.8 for Jewish mothers compared to 4.4 for Arabs.
The total population of Jerusalem as of 2011 is 801,000. Jerusalem’s three biggest neighborhoods are Ramot, Pisgat Ze’ev, and Gilo, all of which exist in areas liberated by Israel in 1967.Malkah Fleisher
