NEW STUDY CONFIRMS THAT GREATER PHOENIX IS ONE OF AMERICA’S LARGEST JEWISH COMMUNITIES
In the summer of 2000, the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix decided to conduct a comprehensive study of the Jewish population in Greater Phoenix. A Demographic Oversight Committee was organized to guide the process, and the committee selected Ukeles Associates, Inc. (UAI) of New York to be the research consultant. UAI assisted the committee in defining the community’s key policy issues and in designing a Jewish population survey that would provide information in these critical areas.
The study addressed the following areas: Household & Population Estimates, Geography, Demography, Jewish Connections, Intermarriage Rate, Raising Children Jewish, Vulnerable Populations and Human Services, and Philanthropy.
