Contemporary Jewish Fertility: Does Religion Make a Difference?

By Frank L. Mott, Joyce C. Abma

Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry (ASSJ), 1992

Data from the 1990 NJPS are used to examine levels of and trends in Jewish fertility in the United States. Jewish fertility levels continue to be bellow those for all white American women. There are significant differences in fertility within the Jewish population, the Orthodox having substantially more children than other groups. Current fertility levels are perhaps too low to assure long-term population replacement.
