The Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) reported, ahead of the end of 2013, that Israel's population is 8,132,000.
According to the report, the country’s population increased by 1.8% – or 147,000 people – since 2012.
CBS’s data showed that 75.2% of the country's population, approximately 6.1 million Israelis, are Jewish. The Arab population of Israel, which includes Muslims, Arab-Christians, and Druse, is 20.6% – 1.6 million.
The remaining 4% of Israel’s population – 348,000 – are either non-Arab Christians, individuals practicing another religion, or those with no religious affiliation.
The report also showed that 175,000 infants were born in Israel in 2013. According to a report published earlier by the CBS Israel’s population is on track to reach 11.4 million by 2035.
Israel’s annual population growth rate, however, is predicted to decline from 1.8% to 1.4% because of declining fertility rates.
