The Census: Yiddish Mother Tongue Subpopulation and the National Jewish Population Survey

By Frances E. Kobrin

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1981

The article evaluates two tools used for the study of American Jewry: the National Jewish Population Survey (NJPS) and the use of indirect measures such as languages spoken at home or mother tongue subpopulations drawn from a national survey. The author argues that for many purposes, research questions of importance for the study of American Jewry would be batter answered with a much less widely appreciated body of data such as the NJPS.
