Fertility is not uniformly low among American Jews. It is well known that Hassidim have significantly larger families on the average than do other Jews. However, non-Hassidic Jews are not homogeneous in family size, and it is, therefore, worthwhile exploring the factors which influence desired fertility among America's Jews generally. The present report is an analysis of data gathered in a study of American Jewish university students in the mid-1970s.
