According to findings by sociologists, Scientology's inner [core] group numbers around 500 persons, although presumably as many as 17,000 Danes have had some contact with the group over the years... Of course, following James A. Beckford's (by now) classical model for membership in new religious movements, the figures are larger if all sub-populations in these groups are taken into consideration (Beckford 1985). TM, as an example, has around 2,000 people on its mailing list, and two or three hundred will join TM courses during a year. Scientology reveals a similar picture. "
