Estimating the Geographic Distribution of America's Jewish Elderly: A Surname Method

By Ira Rosenwaike

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1991

Since there are no U.S. Census data by religion, it is difficult to determine the characteristics of the national Jewish population and of its subgroups. This article describes a surname method of analysis to estimate the size and geographic distribution of the elderly Jewish population in the United States. It uses data from the Medicare enrollment system, as well as other sources, to analyze demographic pattems, both nationally and locally.
