This is the Demographic Problem

Survey: 72% of US Jews said they have no children

Seventy-two percent of American Jews said they had no children, according to a research study released this week by the Pew Research Center's U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, based on interviews with more than 35,000 Americans 18 and older.

The far-ranging study conducted by the Washington D.C.-based Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life also showed that Mormons and Muslims were the U.S. religious groups with the largest families.

The survey is here but the exact wording of the question is: How many children at home do Jews have? And that could be a misleading query. I have no children at home but I am the father of five.
