Jewish Population in the United States, 1982

By Alvin Chenkin

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1983

The Jewish population in the United States in 1982 is estimated to be 5.725 million. The drop from the 1981 figure of 5.921 million is due almost entirely to a lower estimate of the size of the Jewish population of Greater New York City, a figure derived from a newly-conducted demographic study.
