In this population study of Baltimore, Maryland the author provides demographic data about the Jewish community in different areas including household composition and size, service delivery, ritual observance and other areas. The author finds that the proportion of Jewish households with two parents and two children has decreased between 1968 and 1985. In addition, the author finds that there has been a dramatic increase in the proportion of employed women. He also finds that the proportion of people who identify as Orthodox increases as in the under 35 age group which is phenomenon unique only to the Baltimore Jewish community. The author asserts that this data can be useful for long-term planning to deal with the variety of changes occurring within BaltimoreĆ¢??s Jewish community.
