Abstract

This paper presents important results from a population survey of Orlando and compares its geographic, demographic, religious and philanthropic profile with the results of other Florida communities and with those of NJPS. Orlando appears to mirror the national picture relatively well, but is very different from the other Florida communities. In part, the differences from the other Florida communities are attributable to the fact that the population of Orlando is significantly younger.
