50% or 30%, That is the Question.

For visitors who have seen this page before, you may have noticed that the figure of Americans leaving Israel within 5 years of arrival has changed from 50% to 30%.

A representative of the AACI (Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel) pointed out that the source used for the 50% figure (an Israeli newspaper) was somewhat inaccurate (actually wildly inaccurate with no basis in fact would be a better way of putting it).  As the accepted experts in the area of north American immigration their statistics in this area (taken from the latest available, that being 1997) have the greatest chance of being accurate and I have adjusted the page to their figure.
