There are at least 6.8 million Jewish adults and children in the United States. A majority of Jewish adults (~80%) self-identify as Jewish when asked what their religion is. This corresponds to 4.2 million adults or 1.8% of the total U.S. adult population.
The map below displays the distribution of this portion of the Jewish population. Lower and upper bounds on the estimates, representing the "margin of error," are also displayed. For each geographic region, socio-demographic characteristics of the Jewish population are displayed in the panel to the right of the map. More about the map >
