Summary

This study was designed to gather information on anti-Semitism in the United States. The major topics covered include the anti-Semitic beliefs of non-Jews as well as the anti-Semitic experiences of Jews. Additionally, other questions in the instrument gauge Christian fundamentalism and attitudes toward other racial and ethnic groups. The sample used two independent, but integrated samples to represent the population of the United States ages 18 years or older. The "General Public" sample of 1,072 interviews and the Jewish/Black "Supplemental" sample of 143 are combined here into a single sample.

The ARDA has added six additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
