Survey of Greater Pittsburgh's Jewish Population, 1984
United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh
Ann G. Schoor
Adult Jewish Population in Greater Pittsburgh
The data were gathered from 1,125 individuals in households with one or more Jewish individuals via a telephone interview survey. It is estimated in the published report that there are about 47,737 people (of whom about 44,906 are Jews) living in 19,000 Jewish households. The sampling universe included Jewish households located in Greater Pittsburgh. The sampling procedure was a combination of random digit dialing, Jewish Federation lists and Jewish organizational lists.
The data are weighted to compensate for differential sampling; because of oversampling, weighting factors were used to merge parts of the sample equitably.
