The Jewish Community Study of New York: 2011 is a rich source of data that can be mined to deepen our understanding about specific populations and issues.

This page will be home to numerous in-depth reports, special studies, and sets of PowerPoint slides that delve more deeply into topics touched on in the Comprehensive Report and Geographic Profile. Using data from the Jewish Community Study of New York: 2011’s nearly 6,000 interviews — the largest dataset from any local or national Jewish community study — these documents will present summaries and comprehensive analysis on a variety of topics, from poverty to aging, the changing nature of Jewish engagement to intermarriage, the Russian-speaking Jewish population to diversity among Orthodox Jews. As such materials are produced by UJA-Federation they will be made available here.
