Extreme differences in anti-Jewish prejudice and political discrimination that existed, for example, among the general societies of the USA and the USSR had very little effect on the eventual levels of mixed marriage in the two countries (Kosmin et al. 1991; Tolts 1991). Variation in mixed marriage frequencies rather seems to reflect broad historical and cultural patterns associated with the development of Jewish communities in different regions of the world, including whether or not legal provisions existed to limit the free interaction between different ethno-religious groups in a country.
Similar geographical distribution data provide the basis for our attempt to evaluate the characteristics of the American system of ethnic groups around 1980. 4, derive from US census data on ancestry (Lieberson and Waters 1986), and from the 1988 estimates of Jewish population size and distribution prepared by the North American Jewish Data Bank (Kosmin, Scheckner and Ritterband 1989). 1 displays a Smallest Space Analysis (SSA) of the territorial distribution of thirty-six selected ethnic groups in the United States.
In terms of the group’s socio-cultural distinctiveness and continuity, the periphery has a lesser capacity for maintenance of the original cultural contents and for innovation from within, and may depend on the support of cultural tools provided by the core. A further aspect of the socio-cultural relationship is the tendency of the periphery to loosen its identification and to experience diminishing contacts and similarities with the group’s core, and eventually to drift away from recognizable belonging to the given ethno-religious group.
