Jewish Community Study of New York 2011: Supplemental Geography Page

Sponsor(s): UJA-Federation of New York

Principal Investigator(s): Pearl Beck, Steven M. Cohen, Jacob B. Ukeles, Ron Miller

Key Findings:

The revised Geographic Profile of the eight New York counties surveyed in the Jewish Community Study of New York 2011 was released on October 15, 2013 by UJA-Federation of New York.  This is a Supplemental Page to the main study page for the Jewish Community Study of New York 2011 at the Berman Jewish DataBank @ The Jewish Federations of North America.

The complete Geography Profile (over 8 MB) is available under Downloads on the right (it is the same version as the version on the UJA-Federation of New York website and the main page at the DataBank for the New York Study).

In addition, the individual chapters from the Geographic Profile are also available under Downloads on this supplemental study page - -  for those who do not require the complete report.  Chapters on the eight counties -  The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester  -  are available as well as an "Eight-County Overview."  Additional sections provide comparative data on the areas via maps and in tabular format, descriptions of the zip codes used to define the geographic sub-areas, and a brief section on methodology which includes numbers of unweighted interviews for each area and a standard error estimate for each area.

Geographic analyses that are based on the New York 2011 Study will also be added to this page as Supplemental Reports, such as David Pollock's review of Williamsburg's (Brooklyn) Jewish Population comparing the 2011 study data with ACS results, local school data, etc. 

In March 2014, UJA-Federation of New York and JCRC (the Jewish Community Relations  Council of New York) issued two reports focused on New York's Jewish geography.  These reports were compiled by Jennifer Rosenberg and David Pollock and described the Jewish population of New York City in terms of its City Council Districts, and the eight-county area in terms of U.S. Congressional Districts.  The two reports are available under Supplemental Reports on the bottom right of this page. They add significantly to the understanding of Jewish New York's geography, utilizing politically created boundaries as opposed to social/community boundaries. 

The Jewish Community Study of New York: 2002 includes a Geographic Profile which DataBank users of the 2011 geography materials may want to access.  The 2011 geography report notes the changes in geographic clustering for the 2011 study as compared to the 2002 study.
