World Jewish Population (2001)

By Sergio DellaPergola

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2001

The world's Jewish population was estimated at 13.25 million at the beginning of 2001 - an increase of about 40,000 over the previous year's revised estimate. Jewish population trends were most sensitive to geopolitical changes since the 1980s, such as the breakup of the Soviet Union. Birth and death rates, the complexity of Jewish identificational processes, and enhanced international migration makes Jewish population estimates difficult.
