In Jewish Population Studies (World Jewish Population: Trends and Policies) 23, 106-111.This paper describes the process of mapping Jewish residential concentrations. The authors were able to narrow down this process to individual streets. The major questions in play is: what do these maps of Jews as a proportion of the total population tell us about Jewish residential concentration and segregation within the general population? The subsequent analysis of the 1981 Census data was carried out for the Jewish concentrations in London's northwestern Borough of Barnet.
