Published: 01.28.13, 00:16 / Israel News

A new study published by the Adva Center found that since 1992 there has been an improvement in the social status of immigrants from the former USSR and in the economic standing of those whose parents emigrated from Islamic countries.


According to the study's findings, in 1992, 56.7% of former USSR residents were considered to be part of the lower class, in comparison with 38.7% in 2010. Additionally, it found an increase of members of the upper class whose parents came from Islamic countries - from 24.9% in 1992 to 45.3% in 2010. (Avital Lahav)
