|The main findings are:|
|About one-fifth of the increase in the employment in the overall economy between 1995-1999 can be attributed to the increase in employment in the High-Tech Industry. The number of employed persons in the High-Tech industry in this period increased about 50% and was about 150 thousand employed persons in 1999.|
|Over 13% of the increase in the average wage for an employee post in the same period could be attributed to the wage increase in the High-Tech Industry. Average wages for an employee post in High-Tech Industry increased from about 7,720 NIS in 1995 to about 13,370 NIS in 1999.|
|The other findings shows that the High-Tech Industry is characterized as "younger" in terms of age, as more male than female and as relatively high educated. The High-Tech Industry has become centralized in the Tel Aviv and Central districts in terms of demand and supply. The impact of the High-Tech Industry on the creating of jobs in occupations that are not related to High-Tech fields will continue to decline. Changes in Computer and related services and R&D have a significant impact on the High-Tech industry in terms of wages and the labour force.|
