1992 New York City Intergroup Relations Survey

By Renae Cohen, Carolyn Setlow

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1993

The authors analyze a 1992 New York City Intergroup Relations survey that indicates how representative samples of New York City Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Irish, Italians and Jews feel about each other, about the way they themselves are treated in the city, and about the general state of intergroup life in New York. They conclude that the findings of the survey are cause for serious concern in that, among other disturbing discoveries, substantial proportions of New Yorkers see themselves, or the groups to which they belong, as victims of racial and ethnic discrimination. The survey also found that 47 percent of all New Yorkers maintain that Jews have "too much influence in New York City life and politics," a figure substantially more than twice that for any other racial or ethnic group in the city. The authors provide the survey data to support their analysis.
