2019 Annual Assessment

This chapter offers data on the global Jewish population, on major demographic patterns, and on significant milestones and events of the past year. This year we chose to emphasize two important developments. One is the fact that, by mid-2019, the Israeli population had passed the 9-million mark. The other development we focus on is the baby-boom generation’s slide into the 60+ age group, and the ramifications of that transition.
