The Impact of Jewish Identification on the Fertility of American Jews

By Rena Cheskis

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1981

Data from the National Jewish Population Study (NJPS) 1970-1971 indicate that the ethnic factor has more bearing on Jewish fertility than the religious factor. The major implication of this for other ethnic and religious subgroups of the population is that ethnicity may be more important than religious identification for determining group behavior at both the between-group and within-group levels of analysis.
