Voices from the pagan census: a national survey of witches and neo-pagans
By Helen A. Berger, Evan A. Leach, Leigh S. Shaffer
Keenly anticipated by the academic and Neo-Pagan communities, the results of the census provide the most in-depth information about the group yet assembled. Comparing Neo-Pagans with American society at large, Berger, Leach, and Shaffer show that although the two groups share certain statistical characteristics, there are differences as well. The scholars also identify variations within the Neo-Pagan population, including those related to geography and to the movement’s multiple spiritual paths.
This came across one of my groups yesterday. I took the survey and it’s very interesting. It felt like the researchers are trying to figure out what side of the political spectrum most Pagans are on.
