DataBank posts new reports on U.S., Canadian and world Jewish populations

May 10, 2016‚Äč


New reports on the 2015 U.S.Canadian and world Jewish populations are now available at the Berman Jewish DataBank.

The U.S. report, authored by Ira Sheskin and Arnold Dashefsky, contains population information at the national, regional, state and metro levels, as well as in Jewish Federation service areas.  The Candian report, written by Charles Shahar, presents population data at the national, provincial and metropolitan levels.  The world report, prepared by Sergio DellaPergola, has population and demographic information about Jews across the globe, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.

The U.S. and Canadian reports also contain maps that have been posted separately.

Previous U.S. and world reports have been among the DataBank’s most  popular downloads. The Canadian report is appearing for the first time this year.

The three reports initially appeared as chapters in the 2015 American Jewish Year Book, published by Springer.  The DataBank is pleased to thank Springer for permission to post the reports and make them available to DataBank stakeholders, and the Year Book editors, Arnold Dashefsky and Ira Sheskin, for facilitating the arrangement between Springer and the DataBank.
