In Jewish Population Studies 16 (Papers in Jewish Demography, 1981), 239-256. The objective of this paper is to explore one of the mechanisms involved in American Jewish fertility that has not yet been examined in any depth: contraceptive usage. The author asks the following key questions in this article: what are the variations in the type of contraception used among American women? And to what extent are differences between Jewish and non-Jewish contraceptive usage related to socio-economic factors or to other uniquely Jewish characteristics?
