Abstract

In recent decades, many countries have experienced changes in internal migration patterns. In many places, affluent populations have returned to the cities, while middle-class populations, mainly families with children, have moved to peripheral areas. This study examines the extent to which these trends have occurred in Israel. The findings show that in Israel, middle-class families have moved into less affluent municipalities than those they came from, thereby increasing the socioeconomic level of those municipalities. The study analyzes these findings, their ramifications for the new and veteran residents, and the role of planning authorities in their creation and continuation.
