The concept of 'Socio-Ideological type' provides a useful framework for systematic analysis of underlying Jewish population characteristics and emerging trends. Significant relationships between designated socio-ideological types and various demographic characteristics have been previously reported.

This paper addresses several issues associated with this inquiry.
