Study of the Jewish Population of Chicago, 1954
Sponsor(s): Jewish Federation of Chicago
Principal Investigator(s): Philip Hauser
Study Dates: 1954
Jewish population of Chicago estimated to be 251,800 in the city and 9,800 in nearby suburbs.
Hauser's analysis also provides historical data and commentary on earlier Jewish estimation studies - and the methodological issues involved in estimates using different sources of information (death records, Yom Kippur school absences, Distinctive Jewish names counts, etc.)
