In Jewish Population Studies (Jewish Education Worldwide: Cross-Cultural Perspectives), 571-580. This chapter confines itself to a consideration of the basic statistical data recommended for the rational functioning of a Jewish - or any other - educational system. In addition, studies of Jewish-educational attainment and its effects during adult life will be included here; the author demonstrates that this topic can be investigated through representative sample surveys of Jewish populations, such as those that demographers conduct.
