The 1990 Chicago Metropolitan Area Jewish Population Study

By Bruce Phillips, Peter Friedman

Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry (ASSJ), 1994

Chicago completed its third Jewish population study in 1990, concurrent with the National Jewish Population Study. The article reviews the methodology of the most recent Chicago study and analyzes some of the results, which show that while Chicago does reflect many of the national trends, the community is different than one would expect by interpolating national results to the local community. The article also demonstrates the value of local studies to the local community in its planning efforts.
