In 2005, about 56 percent of male newborns were circumcised prior to release from the hospital according to statistics from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Data from a national survey conducted from 1999 to 2002 found that the overall prevalence of male circumcision in the United States was 79%,.91% of men born in the 1970s, and 83% of boys born in the 1980s were circumcised. An earlier survey, conducted in 1992, found a circumcision prevalence of 77% in US-born men, born from 1932–1974, including 81% of non-Hispanic white men, 65% of black men, and 54% of Hispanic men, vs. 42% of non U.S. born men who were circumcised. Only 2% of American men are Jewish. Circumcision appears not to have had any significant impact on US men, Jewish or not and certainly not a negative one.
