Dublin Jewish Demography a Century Ago
AbstractThis paper examines the demography of Irelandâs Jewish community a century ago. Its focus is on Dublin Jewry, then mainly a community of immigrants from the Tsarist Empire and their children. It compares the marital fertility and infant and child mortality of immigrant couples with those of native couples living in the same neighbourhood. While âeconomicâ variables are shown to have mattered, there remains a large âculturalâ component to the distinctive demography of Jewish households.
