Jews the Richest Religious Group, Muslims the Youngest, Hindus Keep the Most
Jews are the wealthiest religious group.
44 percent of Jewish households earn at least $100,000—the highest number in the country—and only 16 percent earn less than $30,000—the lowest number in the country. On the other side, only 4 percent of Jehova’s Witness households earn at least $100,000, while 48 percent earn less than $30,000, putting them just behind the Historically Black Protestant category, where 53 percent of households earn less than $30,000.
Jews aren’t the most educated (but they’re close).
The group with the highest percentage of adults with post-graduate degrees is Hindus, at 48 percent. 31 percent of Jewish adults have post-grad degrees while 29 percent have college degrees.
Miami is America’s most Jewish city, by percentage. The Northeast is America’s most Jewish region.
9 percent of Miami is Jewish while that number is 8 percent in New York City, and 4 percent in the Northeast. Unsurprisingly, the South and the Midwest are America’s least Jewish regions, coming in at 1 percent each.
