New Age Measures

A series of questions with multiple sub-questions asking for respondents’ level of interaction with New Age materials and ideas.  These vary, reflecting the diffuse content of the subculture.  Bainbridge (2004) suggested that New Age, “paranormal” and UFO beliefs were all empirically distinguishable but related belief systems.  In addition to beliefs, there are measures of media consumption and experiences with regard to the New Age.
