Demographic Trends Among the Jews in the Three Slavic Republics of the Former USSR: A Comparative Analysis
Abstract: This article presents voluminous demographic information on the Jews in the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Belorussia which was collected by Soviet population censuses and vital statistics: detailed structure by age and sex in 1959, 1970, 1979 and 1989 (Tables 1A – 3A on pp. 171-173), and annual numbers of births and deaths for the period since 1958 (Tables 4A – 5A on pp. 174-175).

Abstract: This paper is intended to set out some interesting empirical findings and to highlight some of the difficulties of applying the "Distinctive Jewish Name" (DJN) for Social Research on Jews in Britain. The study involved a variety of methods in order to reach a reliable estimate and map the number of Jews in Greater London in 1984.

Abstract: .This paper describes the process of mapping Jewish residential concentrations. The authors were able to narrow down this process to individual streets. The major questions in play is: what do these maps of Jews as a proportion of the total population tell us about Jewish residential concentration and segregation within the general population? The subsequent analysis of the 1981 Census data was carried out for the Jewish concentrations in London's northwestern Borough of Barnet.
