  9. Diaspora Jewish community data is not for 2019 but for somewhat earlier years. The frequency with which these figures is updated varies from country to country. We may assume that the aging of the Jewish population has only intensified since the data was published. Accordingly, the adult-population shares displayed here should be regarded as conservative figures – the lowest they could possibly be. It is entirely likely that they are now somewhat higher.
