Estimating the Jewish Population of the United States: 2000-2010
This report begins with a brief discussion of the methodological problems inherent in understanding the sociodemography of U.S. Jewry and how the approach of the authors attempts to deal with these challenges through data synthesis. The report then describes the results of a synthesis of data collected over the last ten years and the inferences that can be drawn from the data. The report then shifts to a discussion of the use of results from the synthesis to understand characteristics of the contemporary U.S. Jewish community. A specific survey, conducted using a panel developed by Knowledge Networks is analyzed both to provide preliminary data about American Jewry and to illustrate the potential of the methodology.
