Download PDF for this date

Living costs in Israel continued to rise, advancing four points during April to bring the Index to 272. The base index of 100 is for Sept. 1951.

A year ago, when the Israel Government started large-scale subsidies to halt the price rise, the index stood at 265. The April rise automatically hikes wages tied to the index.
