This news release shares key demographic findings from the UJC's 1990 National Jewish Population Survey, including information on the age, gender, marital status, fertility, national origin, regional distribution, households, education, employment, and household income of American Jews. Overall, the Jewish population in the United States remained relatively stable over the previous decade, declining only five percent. At the same time, the American Jewish community continues to be somewhat older, better educated and still more diverse than what it was a decade before or when compared to all Americans.
