Jerusalem Population Growth Down

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Last year's growth rate of
Jerusalem's Jewish popula-
tion was the lowest since the
Six-Day War, the Central
Bureau of Statistics re-
ported in its 1977 survey of
urban growth.
The 2.4 percent growth

cited in the capital's Jewish
population is only .1 percent
under that of 1976 (2.5).
However, it is way under
the 3.7 percent target set by
Premier Golda Meir's gov-
ernment. Municipal offi-
cials claim the slowed
growth is due principally to
decreased immigration and
the shortage of reasonably
priced housing for young
people.
Growth in Jerusalem' s
Arab population slowe d
down as well during 1977
(from 4.4 percent in 197 6
to 3.4 percent last year)
apparently due to the
economic boom in Am-
man, Jordan, which is
drawing workers away
from Jerusalem.
The proportion of Jewish
residents in the capital has
also fallen steadily since the
Six-Day War. While in
1967, Jews constituted 74.2
percent of Jerusalem's
populace, in 1977 they
numbered only 72.4 per-
cent.
However, on the whole,
Jerusalem was the only
large city which registered
growth last year. In the 10
years since the Six-Day
War, it has increased by 41
percent.
