Stratification and the Transformation of American Jews: 1910-90: Have the Changes Resulted in Assimilation?
This paper examines stratification as one of the structural conditions that affects the cohesion within Jewish communities in the United States. It focuses on occupation and education using evidence from 1910, 1970, and 1990 data sources (U.S. Censuses and sample surveys) on Jewish men and women and other white, non Hispanics. The long term changes in Jewish American stratification and its continuing distinctive communal pattern are described. The data provide a basis for assessing the consequences of the changing stratification profile for the continuing developments of the American Jewish community.
