Number of housing units in plans for settlements, that have passed one of the planning stages (approval for deposit or approval for validation). In cases where a plan passes more than one stage in that year, it is counted only once; When a program goes through a stage in another year it is counted again, because the question is how many were promoted it in a year.
* In 2020, two plans that underwent the publication of a deposit (in E1) were also counted because it was a promotion after an 8-year freeze.
Out of the outposts established: 2 outposts were evicted (Migron and Amona); 23 outposts were legalized (three as independent settlements and 20 as "neighborhoods" of existing settlements); at least 12 outposts are in the process of being legalized (plans promoted and/or a government resolution).
The outposts phenomenon started mainly under Netanyahu as Prime Minister in 1996, and it was stopped in 2005. In 2012 the government of Netanyahu started to established illegal outposts again.
