For little or no additional data-gathering expense, the previously underutilized random digit dialed non-Jewish respondents of a Jewish population survey can provide valuable information that can be utilized to triangulate towards the true values of variables about the Jewish community such as intermarried households. More objective measures of concepts such as assimilation and Jewish continuity can be explored and developed by incorporating data on non-Jewish informants.
