World Jewish Population 1993

By Sergio DellaPergola, Uziel O. Schmelz

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1995

The article presents the 1993 updates to the world Jewish population estimates. The country figures for 1993 were updated from those for 1992 in accordance with the known or estimated changes in the interval events, identificational changes, and migrations. Two important data-collection projects yielded important results: the 1989 official population census of the Soviet Union, and the 1990 NJPS in the United States. Their results basically confirm both the estimates reported by us in previous AJYB volumes and our interpretation of the trends now prevailing in the demography of world Jewry.
