    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, NOVEMBER 14 - Social inequality in Israel has fallen steadily in recent years, recent figures from the central statistics office have shown.

    On Monday premier Benyamin Netanyahu told the Knesset this is one of the greatest economic successes of his government. In 2016 the social inequality index fell to 0.359, the lowest level since 2001. Inequality grew progressively between 1997 and 2006, when it peaked at 0.390, the on-line Labour paper Davar-Rishon reports.

    Since then the level has fallen. However, Israel remains one of the most polarised countries among OECD member states. (ANSAmed).
