Who Shall Leave and Who Shall Stay? The Jewish Population of Central Queens

By Steven M. Cohen

May 1978

This report on the Jewish population of central Queens provides a data base useful in deciding whether a YMHA should be built in that neighborhood. This report complements earlier studies of the area undertaken with similar purposes in mind. The report consists of two main sections. The first estimates the area's Jewish population size and the proportion of the entire population which is Jewish. In so doing it develops and describes a procedure for estimating the Jewish population size and Jewish proportion of any large area or list of American names. The second section presents the results of a sample telephone survey of residents in the target area and in an area abutting that neighborhood.
