COGAT put out its October statistics infographic:



The small print on the bottom is interesting.

In September, the Palestinian Bureau of Statistics said that about 90,000 Palestinian Arabs worked for Israelis within the Green Line and 20,000 worked in settlements. COGAT says far fewer work in Israel - but far more work in settlements, nearly 27,000.

I don't know which is more accurate. But COGAT's figure is awfully specific. It appears that they are counting permits.

It is against PA law to work for Jews in the territories. But if these numbers are accurate, then we can estimate that about 6% of the West Bank economy comes from people who work in the settlements (assuming double the average salary.)




This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 22,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
