Key Findings:


World Jewish Population, 2010 by Dr. Sergio DellaPergola presents Jewish population data by country, covering the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.

"The Jewish population data for 2010 presented in this report were updated from 2009 or previous years in accordance with known or estimated changes in vital events, migrations, and identificational issues. In the updating procedure, whether exact data on intervening changes were available, empirically ascertained or assumed directions of change were applied and consistently added to or subtracted from previous estimates. If the evidence was that intervening changes balanced one another, Jewish population size was not changed. This procedure has proven highly effective. Most often, when improved Jewish population estimates reflecting a new census or socio-demographic survey became available, our annually updated estimates proved to be on target."
