The Work and Employment of Suburban Jews: The Socio-Economic Findings of the 1978 Redbridge Jewish Survey

By Barry A. Kosmin, Caren Levy

The Board of Deputies of British Jews, 1981

This report is the third in a series based on an extensive survey, a stratified random sample of 500 households from among the Jewish population of the London Borough of Redbridge, which was carried out by local volunteers between November 1977 and January 1978. Among the findings:

  • Female labour force participation has increased markedly among suburban Jews since the 1960s
  • This population has a low overall level of unemployment but above average rates of sickness and disability
  • The most striking contrasts regarding occupations and work are found between males and females, and the older and younger generations
