An independent, nine-month study by University of Pittsburgh social scientists has established that the readership of the Jewish Chronicle, local weekly newspaper, compares “very favorably” in its socio-economic profile “with those of the ‘premium publications’ of the country.”

The survey was conducted by Dr. Jiri Nehnevasja, chairman of the university’s department of sociology and director of its research office, and Richard H. Pomeroy, research assistant. It was released by Joseph Feldman, president of the Pittsburgh Jewish Publication Education Foundation, publisher of the Chronicle. Chronicle readers, the survey found, are interested in the larger issues of cultural, religious and personal Jewish identity and in the Jewish community. “Not only are Chronicle readers concerned with Jewish news, but many seek also analysis and presentation of all key issues where a Jewish view is relevant,” the survey reported.
