World Jewish Population, 1977 Estimates

By Leon Shapiro

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1979

There are no precise data on Jewish population in the various countries. The figures presented below represent the best possible estimates for 1977. They are based in local censuses, communal registration, and data obtained from a special inquiry conducted in Spring, 1977. We have also used estimates supplied by knowledgeable private local informants, mostly people involved in Jewish communal affairs.
