Recent Trends in Jewish Demographics and Their Impact on the Jewish Media

Principal Investigator(s): Ira M. Sheskin

Study Dates: June 2011

Key Findings:

Recent Trends in Jewish Demographics and Their Impact on the Jewish Media is a slide set created by Dr. Ira Sheskin for a session of the American Jewish Press Association (AJPA) June 27-28 meeting in Dallas. This session examines recent trends in the American Jewish community and their impact on the Jewish media. Part I, relying on both the National Jewish Population Survey and local Jewish community studies, addresses some major trends in the American Jewish community, including the changing size of the Jewish community, its geographic redistribution, changes in levels of Jewish connectivity over time, and the impact of Israelis and Russians on the U.S. Jewish community. Some of the economic and political implications of these major trends are explored. Part II provides a demographic profile of the readers of Jewish newspapers and of Jewish websites. Who is and who is not reading Jewish newspapers and visiting websites for Jewish-related information? This latter analysis relies upon a new data set (Decade 2000) that contains 19,000 20-minutes interviews with Jewish households in 19 American Jewish communities.
