Which Jews Want Children? Correlates of Desired Fertility Among American Jewish University Students

By Mervin F. Verbit

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1983

Fertility is not uniformly low among American Jews. It is well known that Hassidim have significantly larger families on the average than do other Jews. However, non-Hassidic Jews are not homogeneous in family size, and it is, therefore, worthwhile exploring the factors which influence desired fertility among America's Jews generally. The present report is an analysis of data gathered in a study of American Jewish university students in the mid-1970s.
