A study by “Sikkuy – the Association for Civil Equality” says that the Arab communities in Israel suffer from discrimination in the distribution of welfare budgets. Inequality is manifested by the ratio between expenditures in social welfare departments in Arab local authorities, to the overall population; and the share of people in need of welfare services, as defined by the Ministry of Social Affairs. According to estimates, the number of the needy is even higher than the official count, because some in need are not being reported, because even the number of social workers in the Arab communities is not sufficient for locating all the needy.
