DellaPergola's world Jewish population estimate was 14,310,500 at the beginning of 2015, an increase of 95,100 (0.67%) over the revised 2014 estimate by the author of 14,215,400. Since the world's total population increased by 1.13% in 2014, DellaPergola noted that world Jewry increased at about half of the general world population growth rate.
• The core Jewish population estimate for the United States in 2015 is approximately 5,700,000, second to the Israel estimate of 6,217,400.
• Table 3 (report page 19) provides several worldwide Jewish population estimates: core Jews, the population with Jewish parents, an enlarged Jewish population estimate, and a Law of Return Jewish population estimate.
The article presents data on world Jewish population in both graphic and tabular format - and places world Jewish population growth in the context of international migration, and other determinants of Jewish population change worldwide. Approximately 90 pages with 13 main text tables, an appendix table and 6 Figures.
