JEWISH PEOPLE STATS

Of the 6 billion inhabitants of the earth, only 13 million are Jewish. That is less than 1% of the world’s population, and yet, Jewish people have received more than 22% of the Noble prizes awarded. Roughly, 41% of the 13 million reside within the land of Israel and 40% live in the United States. Another 20% of the Jewish population are scattered throughout the remaining countries of the world.
