Be Counted - Pagan Census Project

Everyone who identifies in any way with modern Pagan spirituality is asked to participate in the Pagan Census Project. The Pagan Census was first done about 20 years ago, compiling data from thousands of modern Pagans to give a snapshot of the pagan commuty's rise in the 1990.

Scholar and author, Helen Berger, professor at West Chester State University in Pennsylvania, has announced that she and fellow researchers James R Lewis and Henrik Bogdan are holding the census project again to help establish updated data on the pagan community, and how it has changed. Please set a few moments aside for this survey, and please spread the word to others. The more respondents the census has, the more accurate the data.

You can find it here:

The authors write:“A number of scholars have noted that it would be helpful to have a follow-up survey to see if and how the community has changed or remained the same. The survey uses many, of the same questions that were in the original survey to provide some comparison. There are also new questions, for instance about the Internet, something that was of little interest 20 years ago but is now, and some from other studies, that again permit a comparison. This has resulted in the survey being somewhat long -- we appreciate your taking the time to complete it.”

If you are not sure - please google the census, or the authors names to get any further information you may want before completing the survey.

*peace and blessings*


  1. Going to it right now. Thanks for the link.

  2. Hi Blue,

    So glad to hear things are going well with your daughter! Also, all the Fall decorating and smudging! Makes a house feel cleansed and renewed for the new season!

    As for L.A. - I've been there a few times and it's nice, but I do prefer my seasons too! Just hearing about your New Jersey corn makes me want to run to the farm stand up the road and buy some!

    Blessings to you and your daughter!
