Increase in new religious movements

The neo-Protestant religions have evolved in the opposite direction, with their number of followers increasing. The Pentecostal religion comes in ahead as their number of followers increased from 220, 824 in 1992 to 324, 462 in 2002. These changes are explained and understood by the effects of secularisation and globalisation, the drop in the birth rate and the consequences of economic emigration in a context of sustained social transition and poverty.
