How many Wiccans are there?
Nobody knows how many Wiccans that there are. We have a hunch that few estimates are accurate within 50%.
When we started to research this question, we assumed that we could find a few
reasonably accurate estimates, compute their average, and present the result as a
ballpark number of the number of Wiccans in the U.S. But it was not to be. We found estimates as low as
2,000 Wiccans in 1982 or 3,600 in 1996.
At the other extreme, Phyllis Curott, author of Book of Shadows, estimated 5 to 10 million in 1999. 1
