Jewish Population by Country (2013).png

The world's core Jewish population, as at the beginning of 2013, is estimated at 13,854,800 (around 0.2% of the world population).[1] [2]

The enlarged Jewish population, which includes those with Jewish parents or household, is around 18,197,400. The total number who are eligible for Israeli citizenship under its race-based Law of Return (ie includes anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent) is estimated at around 21,649,500 - of which 6,332,900 already live in Israel.[3]

Countries

Jewish populations by country. Some numbers are given by the American Jewish Year Book 2012[4] and published in the Jewish Virtual Library, a non-governmental website covering topics about US-Israel relations and the Jewish people. Others numbers are given by more accurate governmental and non-governmental local census. The UK numbers are from the 2011 census adjusted by the Office for National Statistics in 2015 and recorded in the 2015 JPR report Strictly Orthodox Rising.
