According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, az-Zubaidat had a population of over 1,340 inhabitants in mid-year 2006.[1] In 1997, refugees constituted 96% of the population.[2] The primary health care facilities for the village are designated by the Ministry of Health as level 2.[3] In January 2010 Robert Fisk reported that the EU-funded installation of a wast-water system was stopped by the Israelis.[4]
