Jerusalem continues to deteriorate in the socio-economic index: the capital fell within a decade from the fourth cluster to the second cluster. It is located in the 50th place of the end and falls to the lowest quintile of local authorities in Israel, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS). 
All 11 municipalities that were in the lower cluster of the socio-economic index in 2013 remained there. All ten municipalities located in the two upper clusters also remained there. Only two authorities are located in the tenth cluster by the way, first Savyon, followed by Kfar Shmaryahu.
 After Savyon and Kfar Shmaryahu, the authorities arrive in the ninth cluster: Lehavim, Omer, Kochav Yair and Har Adar. The only change in the top ten of the authorities compared with 2013 is that Kfar Vradim retreated from seventh to ninth place. The first city in the ranking (as opposed to a local or regional council) is Ramat Hasharon, which is ranked seventh among the authorities and in the ninth cluster. The largest city (over 100,000 residents) is ranked first in Tel Aviv (cluster 8). The first Arab municipality in the ranking, Mi'ilya, is located only in the seventh cluster.
Eight clusters are located in thirty local authorities, including all the cities of the Sharon: Kfar Saba, Ra'anana, Herzliya and Hod Hasharon. Netanya is not in this cluster.
The three poorest municipalities are Bedouin. The regional council of the Bedouin diaspora Neveh Midbar in the last place and before it Tel Sheva and Segev Shalom. The lower decile has 11 authorities, of which nine are Bedouin from the south and two are ultra-Orthodox. The poorest city in Israel is ultra-Orthodox Modi'in Illit, which is ranked in the lower cluster in fifth place at the end. Followed by ultra-Orthodox ultra-Orthodox, who climbed from sixth to tenth, but remained in the lower cluster. The poorest cities are Bnei Brak (19 from the end), Beit Shemesh (22 from the end) and Jerusalem.
JERUSALEM - Two clusters of the socio-economic index deteriorated within a decade. If in 2008 it was in the fourth cluster (99th place from the end) in 2013 it dropped to the third cluster (61th place from the end) and this time it dropped to the second cluster (50 th from the end).
Several authorities that are considered weak have recorded increases: Beit She'an and Sderot have risen from the fourth to fifth clusters; Or Yehuda and Shlomi went up from Thursday to Friday; Lod and Yeruham, on the other hand, descended from the fourth cluster to the third. Holon has not been considered weak for a long time and it has risen from the sixth to the seventh. Kiryat Arba rose from the second cluster to the third. In total, there were 33 index shifts between 2013 and 2015, of which 26 were rising and seven decreases. No settlement rose or fell more than one cluster.
The socio-economic level of the population was measured on the basis of 14 variables, including demographic composition, employment, income from work and other sources, density and quality of housing, apartment equipment, level of motorization, education and social and economic distress. The clusters are not of equal size, but consist of localities with a similar score as possible.
The Union of Local Authorities claims that the publication of the new index will result in the loss of hundreds of millions of shekels to the authorities that have risen in the rankings. The Center's announcement stated that "Unfortunately, all government ministries and other budget agencies are doing this on the basis of the socio-economic index, which measures the socio-economic level of the residents and not the economic strength of the local authority. For example, in this publication, there are 26 local authorities that are raised in the socio-economic cluster, and they will be cut by hundreds of millions of shekels, which will immediately and directly harm the residents. "
The Jerusalem Municipality claims that "the CBS ranking suffers from many distortions that do not adequately reflect the positive trends in Jerusalem." The municipality is still attacking the fact that the rating is based on 2015 data.
