Jews / jewish folks have some pretty remarkable statistics. The Census does not collect statistics, supposedly because they lobbied to be left out because other groups might become envious of their success, unlike some groups who always trumpet depressing numbers to justify more government programs.

Nevertheless there are other ways to get these numbers, and this is my collection of them. See my Asian - Jewish comparisons for a comparison

with the top Asian ethnic groups, the Chinese and Indians. Jews are generally stronger compared to Asian Americans as a group, but they win some and lose some vs. Chinese, and the Indians are generally stronger in most numbers. [WARNING!] This data is meant to document positive contributions of Jews [GOOD], not generate animosity towards successful minority groups [EVIL]. There may be valid reasons to be annoyed at any ethnic group, but anti-semitism is NOT nice.

A Little History of Jewish Enrollment in Higher Learning
Steven L. Pease

Current Levels of Jewish Enrollment

The published results for the 2001 SAT test place Jews second, behind
only the small group of self-identified Unitarians. The Unitarians had
average scores of 1209 (out of a maximum of 1600) versus the Jews at
1161 and the national average of 1020.

With today's better-dispersed Jewish population, the reduced emphasis
on geographic diversity, and outstanding SAT scores, Jews have climbed
to remarkable levels of enrollment at our best schools.

Exhibits 6a and 6b show what that means. Two caveats deserve mention
before plowing into the numbers. First, realize the 2.1 percent
estimate for Jews as a percent of the U.S. population is probably high
for college-age students. This is because Jews are not reproducing at
a replacement rate, and they have a median age of forty-one, six years
higher than the U.S. average of thirty-five. Moreover, the percentage
of Jews under age eighteen is only 21 percent of the Jewish population
versus 26 percent for the overall U.S. population. The second caveat
is that most of the enrollment numbers for Jews on the various
campuses come from Hillel, the nonprofit association supporting Jewish
students on campus. Hillel is not exactly a disinterested party,
though they appear to be the single best source for such data, and
both Jews and non-Jews draw on the data and regard them as credible.

In any case, Jews now are 21 percent of the enrollment at Ivy League
schools (30 percent at Penn, 29 percent at Yale and 26 percent at
Harvard). Perhaps now we now know why Bill Clinton had so many Jews in
his administration. Like Lanny Davis, they were all his Yale
classmates! Princeton and Dartmouth bring up the rear at 10 percent
Jewish enrollment, and interestingly both have had something of a
reputation for anti-Semitism despite until recently having had Jewish
presidents. Even in the less prestigious but still excellent Big 10
and PAC 10 schools, enrollment numbers for Jews are impressive at 8
percent and 7 percent respectively. In that regard, since Big 10 and
PAC 10 schools, unlike the Ivy League, tend to draw heavily from the
local populations, it is instructive to compare the school-by-school
averages with the percent of Jewish populations of the respective
states. In that sense, the 8.4 percent Jewish enrollment at the
University of Washington is even more impressive, since the state has
a Jewish population of only 0.7 percent. The University of Michigan
and Northwestern are similarly notable by that standard.


The NORC study of college seniors back in the Sixties, if read carefully, 
predicted a decline in the percentage of Jewish academics.  Jews were then 
six percent of college seniors, but 24% and 22% respectively of those 
planning to go to law school and med school. Children of well-off Jews went 
into those fields; children of poor Jews became academics. Was pretty clear 
that there weren't going to be that many poor Jews in the next generation. 
As for Jews in business, they have in recent decades naturally gravitated to 
the media/Hollywood/Silicon Valley complex, rather than the hard sciences. 
More fun, and often a better chance for reward. 
At Yale, [jewish quotas ] it was dropped for admission for the class of '69, which would have 
been the admissions year 1964-65. All similar schools did the same thing 
within a year or two on either side.

NS 2764: How religion made Jews genetically distinct
* 13:00 04 June 2010 by Andy Coghlan

Jewish populations around the world share more than traditions and
laws--they also have a common genetic background. That is the
conclusion of the most comprehensive genetic study yet aimed at
tracing the ancestry of Jewish people.

In a study of over 200 Jews from cities in three different
countries, researchers found that all of them descended from a
founding community that lived 2500 years ago in Mesopotamia.

Harry Ostrer of New York University, whose team carried out the
study, likens modern Jewish populations to a series of genetic
islands spread across the world.

The team found genetic traces of a period of intense conversion to
Judaism during the time of the Roman Empire, when up to 10 per cent
of citizens were Jewish. Among modern non-Jewish Europeans,

The Haredim Who Are the Haredim?  The Diaspora custom is to call them
"hasidic Jews," though not all of them are. Hasidim are indeed the
largest group. Another term often applied to the haredim,
"Ultraorthodox," evokes two associations: greater orthodoxy than
Orthodoxy,3 and resistance to every Jewish movement that has arisen
since the late eighteenth century—Reform and its Conservative
backlash, the Emancipation, the Haskalah (the Jewish Enlightenment),
secularism, assimilationism, and Zionism, including its Orthodox wing.

Questions about the holocaust and revisionists "6. What conclusions
did Prof. Arthur Butz reach about the extent of Jewish mortality
during World War II after extensive investigations lasting for years?
Prof. Butz has stated that "about 350,000 or perhaps 400,000 inmates
died in the German camps during the war, some minority of that number
being Jews." (Note, this hangs from a heavily anti-Jewish site)

"This cross-checking, therefore, confirms the estimate of
approximately 3 million European Jews under German occupation."  "And
yet it is known that large numbers of Jews were alive in Europe after
1945. Philip Friedmann in Their Brother's Keepers (N.Y., 1957, p.
13), states that "at least a million Jews survived in the very
crucible of the Nazi hell," while the official figure of the Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee is 1,559,600. Thus, even if one accepts
the latter estimate, the number of possible wartime Jewish deaths
could not have exceeded a limit of one and a half million."  "The
World Almanac of 1938 gives the number of Jews in the world as
16,588,259. But after the war, the New York Times, February 22nd,
1948 placed the number of Jews in the world at a minimum of
15,600,000 and a maximum of 18,700,000. Quite obviously, these
figures make it impossible for the number of Jewish war-time
casualties to be measured in anything but thousands. 15-1/2 million
in 1938 minus the alleged six million leaves nine million; " It is
remarkable that the testimony of this highly dubious person Hoettl is
said to constitute the only "proof' regarding the murder of six
million Jews. In his affidavit of November 26th, 1945 he stated, not
that he knew but that Eichmann had "told him" in August 1944 in
Budapest that a total of 6 million Jews had been exterminated."

Note that since this fall under a page titled "jewish conspiracy", 
the accuracy is a bit suspect.

Which on first glance does make it look as if the Jewish community
is the one to beat. However it is *family* income so larger families
with more family members working probably skews the Chinese figures.
And the Jewish figures are biased by *age* as the median ages in the
US are,

        Jewish          46

If half the American Jewish community is 46 or over (and the mind

See intelligence

Jews are among the most highly rated in IQ of any ethnic or religious groups. Beyond the usual cultural explanation, there is a school of thought that maybe these guys ARE selected to be smarter. There is some thought that cultural selection which favored rabbis or academics over a few thousand years might be enough to account for this difference. The other explanation is that there is no such thing as IQ and all ethnic groups are equal in all talents by definition.

Only the first premise is true—there is little doubt that capitalism has benefited Jews.

For hundreds of years, it has been fraught with suspicion, denial, resentment, guilt, self-hatred and violence. No wonder Jews and gentiles alike are so uncomfortable confronting Jewish capitalistic competence. Still, in his slim essay collection "Capitalism and the Jews," Jerry Z. Muller presents a provocative and accessible survey of how Jewish culture and historical accident ripened Jews for commercial success and why that success has earned them so much misfortune. From Aristotle through the Renaissance (and then again in the 19th century, thanks to that Jew-baiting former Jew Karl Marx), thinkers believed that money should be considered sterile, a mere means of exchange incapable of producing additional value. Only labor could be truly productive, it was thought, and anyone who extracted money from money alone--that is, through interest--must surely be a parasite, or at the very least a fraud.

Not Good Enough * consistently 75+% democratic since 1928, with a few exceptions but always well over 50% * jews will accept any jews except christian ones * As Podhoretz trenchantly replies, "If the theory were valid, the Orthodox would be the most liberal sector of the Jewish community". * "… the egalitarianism behind the liberal conception of social justice is altogether foreign to the Torah. Unlike the New Testament, which consistently favors the poor over the rich and sees money as the root of all evil, in the Hebrew Bible riches are just as consistently considered a blessing. * back in 1987, Jews made up 92 of the Forbes 400 richest people in America, according to Nathaniel Weyl’s 1989 book, The Geography of American Achievement. This month, however, after 22 years in which power at the federal level has been fairly evenly split between the two parties, Jacob Berkman, who covers Jewish philanthropists for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, estimated that in the newly released 2009 Forbes 400: “At least 139 of the Forbes 400 are Jewish” That’s an increase of about one-half over 22 years. Hence, Jews, who comprise about 1/50th of the population, are 1/3rd or more of the Forbes 400. On a per capita basis, Jewish-Americans are roughly 25 times more likely than other Americans to be billionaires. * Podhoretz contends, plausibly, that liberalism is a substitute religion for Jews. He quotes Dennis Prager: "Despite their secularism, Jews may be the most religious ethnic group in the world". When Jews stopped believing in Jehovah, according to Podhoretz, they didn’t start believing in nothing; they believed in Marxism. * Michael Medved sharpens this analysis, pointing out that hostility toward Christians—anti-Christianism..Medved offers a test of his hypothesis: "What is the one political or religious position that makes a Jew utterly unwelcome in the organized community [e.g., in synagogues]?
