These papers attempt to encapsulate the conceptual and methodological issues and decisions that Jewish population research confronts. We draw heavily on the lessons learned from our experience designing, executing, an analyzing the 2001-02 Survey of Heritage and Religious Identification. Part one presents a Jewish population estimate based on this survey along with the methodology and procedures employed. Part two is a broad-ranging review of the current issues facing the field that, we believe, offers some new ideas.
