Immigration to Israel Ideology vs. Reality

By Yitzhak Berman

World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1984

The author describes a study on the reasons for immigrating to Israel. The data supports the prevalent findings in studies of migration pull factors, which show a close correspondence between economic growth and immigration rate. The data does not support the hypotheses that there should be little or no relationship between immigration to Israel and economic variables as a result of the unique experience of immigration to Israel, which is supposed to be a result of ideological-religious factors.
