Beyond the findings of the long-awaited National Jewish Population Survey 2000- 2001, a lot of numbers have emerged:5.5 million — the number of random phone calls made to reach 1.3 million households;
4,500 — the number of Jewish households surveyed; 330 — the questions asked;
43 — the average number of minutes to complete a survey;
100 — the number of people who opted to answer the survey in Russian;
700 — the number of people with a Jewish background, but not identified as Jews, who completed a shorter survey;
22 — the number of “replicate” surveys NJPS conducted, studies nearly identical to the main study, which will be used to offer subsequent in-depth looks at various segments of the Jewish community; and
900 — the number of organizations and individuals that provided input into the questions.
