As of December 2020, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Niger. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2020 report called the ''[[Demographics of Astronism]]'', Niger had an Astronist population of 5,050, up from 4,300 Astronists recorded in 2019.
