Jerusalem is one of the five most least livable cities in Israel, according to a new report released by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), Walla! News reported Wednesday.
The index indicates that the city has become poorer and its overall socioeconomic situation has deteriorated, Walla! said.
Jerusalem is the largest city with a ranking of 2, the second lowest on the 8-point scale. Tel Aviv received a ranking of 8, the highest possible, and Haifa, Rishon Lezion and Petach Tikva, 7.
The four other towns and cities sharing Jerusalem’s ranking are Bnei Brak and the Arab communities Jisr al-Zarka, Umm al-Fahm, Zarzir and Bukata.
