The Alumni of Ramah Camps, 2016: A Long-Term Portrait of Jewish Engagement, sponsored by the National Ramah Commission and conducted by Steven M. Cohen.  Reports, slide decks, toplines, the survey instrument, methodological documentation and data files are included in the study materials.

The 2017 Nishma Research Profile of American Modern Orthodox Jews, sponsored by the Micah Foundation and conducted by Nishma Research.  The study highlights the diversity of the modern Orthodox community and focuses on issues of particular concern to the community.  Study materials include a summary report with methodological description, verbatim responses to open-ended questions, a press release, the questionnaire and data files.

The 2017 AJC Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion, commissioned by the American Jewish Committee and conducted by SSRS.  Study materials from the 2017 survey include reports, toplines, crosstabulations, methodological information, and data files.  The 2017 survey joins more than two decades of AJC annual surveyshoused at the DataBank.

America’s Changing Religious Identity: Findings from the 2016 American Values Atlas, a study conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) with Robert P. Jones and Daniel Cox as principal investigators.  The sample of more than 100,000 respondents has a sufficient number of Jewish respondents for PRRI to analyze them separately and compare them to other religious groups.  Study materials available at the DataBank include the full report with a methodological appendix, the survey instrument with topline results, and a press release.
