Jewish Demography in California: The Use of Aggregated Survey Data

By Alan M. Fisher, Curtis K. Tanaka

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1989

California Jews occupy a space between American Jews and Californians. For several measures of position California Jews more closely resemble Jews across the country than other Californians. On a series of related socio-economic variables, Californian Jews stand out within the state for: higher education, higher vocational status, and higher income. These traits are mutually reinforcing and contribute to other characteristics: greater concentration in metropolitan areas, more liberal attitudes on civil liberties and social-cultural issues, and greater incidence of bachelorhood, delayed marriage, as well as fewer children.
