"Patterns of Diffusion and Religious Globalization: An Empirical Survey of New Religious Movements " in Temenos 32 (1996), 195-220. (Viewed online, Temenos web site, 30 Jan. 1999) "...following James A. Beckford's... classical model for membership in new religious movements, the figures are larger if all sub-populations in these groups are taken into consideration... However, even if all sub-populations are considered... the success of the recent new religions in Denmark is meagre to say the least. Some 100 nonconventional religious groups [are in Denmark], but the total number of Beckfordian devotees & adepts is, in my estimation, less than 2,000 individuals at [any one time], which is the same as approx. 0.04% of the Danish pop. Including those only occasionally or superficially participating in the religious groups' activities (what Beckford calls 'clients'), the total number of people involved with a new religious group in Denmark does not in my estimation exceed 15,000 which equals about 0.3% of the total pop.

"Agency May Be Formed to Track Activities of 'Dangerous Sects' in Europe " in Salt Lake Tribune, Saturday, June 26, 1999 (viewed online 26 June 1999). "A report submitted with the recommendation said the proposal grew out of the rise across Europe in recent years of 'sects and new religions.' In addition, the report noted the need to head off further 'serious disturbances of law and order' and 'carnage' associated in recent years with groups such as Japan's Aum Shinri Kyo cult and the Order of the Solar Temple in France and Switzerland. The report also said a number of groups successfully have established themselves in Russia and other formerly communist nations since the fall of the Soviet Union, prompting government backlashes. Great Britain's David Atkinson -- mentioning Baptist, Pentecostal and evangelical Protestant groups -- said 'these so-called evangelistic missions usually originate abroad, notably in the United States.'
