Revisiting Demographic Paradigms: Comments on Sergio DellaPergola "Thoughts of a Jewish Demographer in the Year 2000"

By Calvin Goldscheider

Springer Netherlands, January 2000

The author responds to Professor Sergio DellaPergola's "Thoughts of a  Jewish Demographer in the Year 200", focusing on three themes: data that have been missing from Jewish demographic surveys; ideological and conceptual biases; and the connection between data and the policies they have helped to shape. The author takes issue with unintended implications lurking behind  DellaPergola's framework of ethnogenesis, ethno-maintenance and ethno-extinction.
