NJPS Series- Economic Vulnerability in the American Jewish Population

By Laurence A. Kotler-Berkowitz

United Jewish Communities (UJC), 2004

This report utilizes data from the NJPS 2000-01 to examine economic vulnerability in the American Jewish population. It focuses on the low income and its association with a variety of social and communal factors. After defining and measuring the concept of low income, estimates of the proportion and number of Jewish households and their members who fall within the low income category are provided. The report also intends to examine which groups in the American Jewish population have higher rates of low income; compare characteristics of the low income with others, and investigate the social and communal consequences of having a low income.
