DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45473


Estimating the number of Pagans worldwide is complex due to the diversity of Pagan practices. While millions engage in practices that could be classified as Pagan, many do not identify with the term. In the UK and the US, census data shows a gradual increase in Pagans. Paganism in each country varies with its history. However, not everyone practising Pagan rituals considers Paganism their religion.
