The North American Jewish Data Bank is the central repository of social scientific studies of North American Jewry. The Data Bank’s primary functions are to (1) acquire, archive, and disseminate quantitative data sets and reports, both contemporary and historical and (2) encourage utilization of the archive through training and provide information about methods for studying Jewish communities. Our goal is to aid in understanding North American Jewish communities, and to improve the quality and utilization of research conducted about North American Jewry. The Data Bank is the sole distributor of the NJPS 2000-01 dataset and has a large collection of related material. The North American Jewish Data Bank is a collaborative project of United Jewish Communities and the University of Connecticut’s Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life and Roper Center for Public Opinion Research.
