World Jewish Population 2003

By Sergio DellaPergola

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 2003

Figures on population size, characteristics, and trends are a primary tool in the evaluation of Jewish community needs and prospects at the local level and internationally. The estimates reported in this overview reflect a prolonged and ongoing effort to study scientifically the demography of contemporary world Jewry. The world's Jewish population was estimated at 12.95 million at the beginning of 2003. The figure reflects a significant downward revision, mostly related to a new estimate on the Jewish population in the U.S.
