Situated in western Asia, the State of Israel shares land borders with Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt, as well as the Palestinian territories of West Bank and Gaza. Its coastlines run along the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Israel is the only country in the world with a majority Jewish population and defines itself as the nation-state of the Jewish people. The economic capital city is Tel Aviv, but the seat of government is in Jerusalem.
Israel was one of the earliest lands to be settled out of Africa. Its significance historically, religiously and culturally is huge. It was incorporated into empires ranging from the Neo-Babylonian Empire and the Roman Empire, through domination during the crusades by Christian as well as Muslim rule. In the 1500s it became absorbed into the Ottoman Empire. The late nineteenth century witnessed the establishment of Zionism amongst Jewish people and supporting of the concept of the return to a Jewish homeland in Palestine, traditionally known by the Jewish population as the Land of Israel. The exodus of displaced Jews from Eastern Europe at the end of the nineteenth century began this migration to modern-day Israel. After WWII the United Nations recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish states and the State of Israel declared independence. Since then, Israel has been in a state of war and unrest with Palestinian and Arab neighbours. Despite years of mediation and some peace treaties, a full resolution has not been reached. Israel is a parliamentary democracy, divided into six main administrative districts.
Israel has high levels of education and its resulting technology boom and economic diversity, and success has paid testament to this. After USA, Israel has the second largest number of start-up companies. It is limited on natural resources but has intensified its agricultural offering to become largely self-sufficient. It exports cut diamonds, chemicals, industrial equipment, and textiles. It is a major research and development hub and a major innovator in water conservation. Tourism - particularly religious tourism - also contributes heavily to the economy. Israel is very heavily urbanised with over 90% of the population residing in or around cities.
The cultural heritage of Israel is rich and has influences from the Arab world, the ancient world and the rest of the world due to the Jewish diaspora. It is the only country which follows the Hebrew calendar. Israel is home to the greatest number of museums, per capita, than any other country and is the guardian of the history of Jewish peoples-ranging from The Dead Sea Scrolls to the Holocaust. There is a strong music tradition in Israel, with global influence in abundance. Hebrew is the official language and poetry is a strong literary medium. The leading sports are soccer, basketball and chess.
On the world stage Israel is a member of the United Nations.

Additional variables

Please see the table above for availability of the following additional variables.

Retail spend

Retail spend refers to the potential share for retailers of the purchasing power of households within a given populated area. It is calculated as general purchasing power, less fixed expenditure. High quality, proven retail spend data is available on a municipality, postcode and small area basis.

Retail turnover

Retail turnover refers to the turnover of local retail trade. In contrast to purchasing power and retail spend, retail turnover quantifies purchases at the consumers’ place of expenditure. High quality, proven retail turnover is available on a municipality, postcode and small area basis.

Retail centrality index

The retail centrality index describes the capacity of a given area to attach the retail spend of its own population, as well as incoming shoppers from other areas, to the local retail trade. Cities with a high ‘shopping appeal’ have a centrality index of over 100. This is because they attract more shoppers and retail spend from surrounding areas than they emit in return. The retail centrality index is available at municipality and postcode code level.

Consumer spend by product groups

Consumer spend by product group quantifies the expenditure by consumers on specific groups of goods or services.

Whilst purchasing power is the most commonly used indicator for a region’s potential, it is not necessarily the most appropriate planning tool for all goods and services, as for some, patterns of consumer behaviour do not relate exclusively to disposable income. In order to respond to the nuances of the market, the general purchasing power values have been enhanced and recalculated based on consumer spend for twenty product categories.

Product categories include: food and non-alcoholic beverages; alcoholic beverages, tobacco, clothing, footwear, furniture & furnishings (carpets and other floor coverings), household textiles, household appliances, glassware (inc. tableware & household utensils), tools and equipment for house and garden, routine household maintenance, medical products, appliances and equipment, consumer electronics (inc. photographic and IT equipment), durables for recreation and culture, toys and games (inc. hobby, sport, garden, pets), recreational and cultural services, newspapers (inc. books and stationery), catering services, personal care and jewellery (inc. clocks, watches and other personal effects).
