Data Sets Available from the Galilee Society

The Galilee Society, which is affiliated with the University of Haifa has access to large volumes of data related to the Palestinian population of Israel.

They are interested in collaboration with the DRSC to leverage this data and to improve their data collection, analysis and understanding. They have a number of interesting problems related to the data itself, and are open to new avenues of research utilizing this data. For example, how to combine data from five socio-economic surveys, where most questions are the same but some evolved and also the people surveyed are not the same but there is data about their zip codes that are informative to some extent -  for comparing populations.
