Estimates of the British Jewish Population 1984-88
During the 20th century, estimates of the British Jewish population have been obtained by applying appropriate death-rates to communal mortality data. This death-rate method has become increasingly sophisticated with respect to the death-rates used. The exercise reported here covers more than 22 000 deaths recorded in the community over the 5-year period. These indicate a Jewish female:male death ratio about 3% higher than that of England and Wales. An estimate of 308 000 is suggested for the community, in which deaths-related data are augmented by information about births within the community.
