Jewish Federation of St. Louis: Community Study, 1995

Sponsor(s): Jewish Federation of St. Louis

Principal Investigator(s): Gary A Tobin

Study Dates: 1994-1995

Population Estimates:

The published report indicates that the "Jewish population" of St. Louis is 60,000.

This number has been interpreted as 60,000 Jews, but the 60,000 estimate includes both Jewish persons living in 24,600 Jewish households (a Jewish adult lives here) and non-Jewish persons who are related to the Jewish adult.

The actual estimate of the number of Jews is between 53,400 and 54,000 -  with over 6,000 non-Jews being included in the  original 1995 "Jewish population" estimate.

Please note that the American Jewish Yearbook estimate of the number of Jews in St. Louis uses the correct 54,000 or so Jewish persons recalculation based on the 1995 reports.
