Adult Jewish Households in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and the Portsmouth-Chesapeake Area
These data were gathered from 200 individuals in households that contain one or more Jewish adults. It is estimated in the published report that there is a total Jewish population of 15,600 (+/- 600) persons living in Jewish households in the Tidewater area. The sampling universe consisted of Jewish households in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and the Portsmouth-Chesapeake area. The sampling procedure used one sampling frame: Random digit dialing (RDD) (n=200).
The data are weighted to reflect estimates of the Jewish population in Tidewater and equalize the effects of responses from heavily Jewish neighborhoods.
