Fertility of the Jewish Population in the Netherlands in the Light of the Second Census of Dutch Jewry

By Han Emanuel

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1977

This report presents the analysis of data from a census of Dutch Jewry, focusing on marital fertility. Analysis of the data indicates that some increase in the fertility of the Jewish women in the Netherlands did occur. The author argues that this development could be attributed to the Dutch Jewry belonging to the better educated and urban strata of the Dutch population, within which there has been a tendency to greater fertility after World War II.
