Family Stats

According to the report released in honor of the upcoming Family Day:

73,000 Israeli couples have opted to live together without marriage, representing  approximately 5% of the population.

12% of all Israeli families in 2011 are single parent units, with 107,000 households consisting of a single Mom or Dad and a child under army age.

The number of unmarried single mothers rose 60% between 2000 and 2011, and we now number 13,500 amazing women.

I wonder how many of those mothers are single by choice

I am not sure they ask that question when they do the population survey, but it's a comfort that we are part of the "mainstream."
