This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "A Demographic Analysis of the Omaha Jewish Community" by Murray Frost.

The 1970 Census asked no questions about religious identification and therefore a religious community must make its own studies to determine the characteristics of its population. A study conducted for the Omaha Jewish Federation by the Center for Applied Urban Research provided this data for the Omaha Jewish community.

This report presents data from a ten-page questionnaire mailed in Fall 1975 to all households on the "community list" maintained by the Omaha Jewish Federation. Responses were received from 1,165 of the 2,484 households, a 46.9 percent response rate. This report presents data drawn from that survey relating to (a) population estimates and characteristics, (b) nativity and mobility, and (c) projected 1980 Omaha Jewish population.
