NSAJG Frequencies

Connected to Give: National Study of American Jewish Giving Frequencies

The core Jewish research instrument for Connected to Give is the National Study of American Jewish Giving, a national survey of 2,911 American Jewish households.  (Mixed households of Jews and non-Jews are included in the NSAJG; other mixed households not containing Jews are included in the National Study of American Religious Giving.) The survey instrument used to measure giving largely replicated Indiana University’s biennial Philanthropy Panel Study (PPS) and Bank of America Studies of High Net Worth Philanthropy. Indiana University’s giving instrument, first fielded in 2001, as a module within the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, serves as the benchmark measure for American charitable giving. Professor Steven M. Cohen, of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) and the Berman Jewish Policy Archive, supplied selected Jewish engagement questions used in numerous Jewish community studies across the United States.

Connected to Give: National Study of American Religious Giving Frequencies

The core research instrument for Connected to Give: Faith Communities is the National Study of American Religious Giving, a national survey of 1,951 American households, including an oversample of households with incomes of $100,000 and higher.  (The sample does not include American Jews or respondents in mixed households of Jews and non-Jews; they were surveyed through the National Study of American Jewish Giving.) The survey instrument used to measure giving largely replicated Indiana University’s biennial Philanthropy Panel Study (PPS) and Bank of America Studies of High Net Worth Philanthropy. Indiana University’s giving instrument, first fielded in 2001, as a module within the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, serves as the benchmark measure for American charitable giving. The instrument used to measure affiliation with religious traditions replicated the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life’s U.S. Religious Landscape Survey (2007).
