The paper describes the sociodemography of donor insemination recipients in Israel. Arab recipients are very few. Among the Jews, married recipients are generally younger than their single counterparts, and they are somewhat less educated and more religious. Ethnically, the percentage of Orientals among the married recipients is relatively higher; among the single women, Orientals are under-represented. On the whole, however, donor insemination seems to have reached Jewish Israelis of all segments of society.
