In 2008, Gen08, the first comprehensive national survey of Australia’s Jewish population was undertaken.The survey was completed by over 6,200 participants in Australia and New Zealand – a record for surveys undertaken in the Diaspora.
The Gen17 survey, launched in February 2017, will replicate the 2008 study, to measure the extent of change that has occurred within the Jewish population. It will make possible a full understanding of the current views and needs of Jewish Australians, enabling organisations to plan effectively and to target their resources to areas of greatest need and impact.
The Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University, in partnership with JCA, the Jewish Communal Appeal Sydney, is leading this Australia-wide project. Communities across Australia are co-operating on this second comprehensive national survey.
