Israel: Central Bureau of Statistics: Database of the Month

Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics website is a Hebrew and English language database that, according to its own description, provides statistical information about “the State and its population in the fields of health, wellbeing, education, economy etc., as well as on the subjects of physical, geographic and ecological indices.”
Drop-down menus on the left side of the page make navigating the database and finding relevant information very easy. For instance, pointing to Society and Population and then clicking on Crime-Public Order leads to information about convictions in criminal trials to the year 2009.

Additionally, the site has several interesting features in the center of the page, such as press releases and recent financial information.

Tabs in small print at the top of the page, link to more information. The drop-down menu from the Publications and Products tab offers access to archival material, periodicals, pamphlets, and more. People interested in the technical aspects of statistical measurements can consult the tabs Databank & Tools and Classification & Methods.
