California Jews: Data From the Field Polls

By Alan M. Fisher, Curtis K. Tanaka

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1986

The data cited in this article are from 1958 through 1984. The sociodemographic findings covered fall into four basic categories: place of residence; achieved status (education, income, occupation); marital status and family size; and ascribed status (race, gender, age). The first section presents comparisons of California Jews with nationwide statistics; the next section compares Jews with non-Jews in California in the early 1980s. A third section looks at trends in California over the last 20 years. Finally, there is a brief summary discussion of the data, including projections for the future.
