Knowledge about U.S. Jewish Populations: Retrospect and Prospect 1970-2001

By Fred Massarik

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1992

In this article, the scientific director of the 1970 National Jewish Population Study comments on the political factors that affect Jewish demographic research and compares that study to the 1990 NJPS. Although large-scale surveys are a key tool for understanding Jewish populations, deeply probing interviews and ethnographic methods are also important research methodologies for obtaining in-depth knowledge about the American Jewish community today.
