This article is about the current Jewish population. For historical numbers, see Historical Jewish population comparisons. For different regions, see Jews by country and Jewish ethnic divisions. See also Who is a Jew?.

The Jewish population is the number of Jews in the world, something that is difficult to calculate, given the constant debates over the definition of Jew. All demographic numbers given in this article will be estimates, from sources noted below.

[edit] Total population

According to the World Jewish Population Survey of 2002<ref>World Jewish Population Survey of 2002</ref>, "The size of world Jewry at the beginning of 2002 is assessed at 13,296,100." According to a 2002 study by the Jewish Agency<ref>Number of Jews dropping, Israeli agency warns 4 December 2002</ref>, "There are 12.9 million Jews in the world..."

Estimates for 2006 usually place the world population of Jews around 14 million.

Additional sources cite the population at numbers ranging from 12.8 million to 18.2 million.<ref>Judaism, continued... citations at Adherents.com</ref>

[edit] Current population estimates

According to the World Jewish Population Survey of 2002<ref>World Jewish Population Survey of 2002</ref>, "The size of world Jewry at the beginning of 2002 is assessed at 13,296,100. World Jewry constituted about 2.19 per 1,000 of the world’s total population. One in about 457 people in the world is a Jew. According to the revised figures, between 2001 and 2002 the Jewish population grew by an estimated 44,000 people, or about 0.3 percent."

According to a 2002 study<ref>Number of Jews dropping, Israeli agency warns 4 December 2002</ref> by the Jewish Agency, "the number of Jews in the world is declining at an average of 50,000 per year."

[edit] Populations as a percentage

All estimates of population in this section are generated by taking the estimated percentage of Jews in each country, and multiplying it by the population of the country. Though figures given in the table may seem precise to many digits, they are often highly inaccurate, and can vary by significant margins from other published surveys. This data is intended to give rough estimates of the number of Jews in each country, more precise estimates for some countries are available above.

As an example, the tables below give the Jewish population of Argentina as 395,379 Jews in Argentina, generated from the fact that Jews are 1% of the population. The best survey-based sources generally estimate the number of Jews in Argentina at around 250,000<ref>Jews In Argentina</ref>, however, while still citing the Jews as 1% of the population. All the numbers below are similarly estimates, so the figures in the table below should be considered in the light of these variations, and should not be viewed as exact counts.

The percentage of Jewish population of each country was taken from the US State Department's International Religious Freedom Report 2004<ref>US State Department's International Religious Freedom Report 2004'</ref>, and, if not available on that site, from Jewish Population Tables<ref>Jewish Population Tables</ref>. The total population of each country was taken from census.gov <ref>census.gov</ref> (2005 estimates).

These numbers are for Jews as an ethnicity; many, but not all, practice the religion of Judaism.

These percentages were calculated by using the above numbers. The first percentage, 4th column, is the percentage of population that is Jewish in a region (Jews in the region * 100/total population of the region). The last column shows the Jewish percentage compared to the total Jewish population of the world (Jews in the region * 100/total Jewish population of the world).
