This study aims to compare the conditions of Arab local authorities to Jewish ones and to demonstrate the impact of these authorities on the lives of their residents. The study is based on a comparison of 25 Arab local authorities and 25 Jewish local authorities in 2001 using data provided by the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics. Specifically, the study focused on the distribution and allocation of financial resources (government funding), areas of jurisdiction, and water consumption.
