There are 11,111,111 Palestinians, around the world


By Dr. Asmat Hayat Alvi.


According to a Statistics report issued by an independent Palestinian Group, there are 11,111,111 Palestinians around the world.

Happy News is; the growth rate in Palestinians population is better than Jews living in Israel and around the world.

Bad News is; the average in Palestinians is dropped from 42.7 births per 1000 population in 1997 to 32.7 in 2009.

Report shows 3.0% average growth rate in Palestinians population all over the world.

Report shows, over half of world's Palestinians live in Diaspora.

According to another report issued by PA, growth in the Palestinian territories in 2009 stood at 2.9%.

According to PA report, there are currently 2.5 million people living in the West Bank, and 1.5 million people living in the Gaza Strip.

The report includes Israel's Arabs among the global Palestinian population, adding another 1.25 million people.

Of the Palestinians living abroad, Jordan has the highest rate, with 3.24 million Palestinian residents, making up almost 30% of the global Palestinian population. Some 1.78 million Palestinians live in other Arab countries, and some 618,000 are scattered around the world.

Some 45% of the residents of the Palestinian territories are internal refugees who were removed from their lands. The percentage of refugees in the West Bank stands at 18.8%, and in Gaza – 26.2%, and growing, the report said.

Although the average birth rate of a Palestinian woman is better than a Jewish Woman but it is on decline as compared with past. The PCBS examined data from 1997 – 2007 in terms of average family size and fertility rates. In 2007, a Palestinian woman had an average of 4.6 children, compared to an average of six children 10 years prior.

The Palestinian family, which included an average of 6.4 souls in 1997, shrunk to 5.8 people per family a decade later.

The crude birth rate in the Palestinian territory dropped from 42.7 births per 1000 population in 1997 to 32.7 in 2009 and the crude death rate in the territories declined from 4.9 deaths per 1000 population in 1997 to 4.3 in 2009.
