The United States National Jewish Population Study (NJPS) constitutes the first attempt to design and conduct a nationwide survey representative of the U.S. Jewish population as a whole. NJPS's purpose is to provide a picture of the Jewish population, as free as possible from bias - the overrepresentation of the Jewishly identified - and to give fundamental
insights into the characteristics of the American Jew.
In this report, basic demographic and socio-economic data and findings on intermarriage are presented as "first facts" emerging from the United States Jewish Population Study.
