Abstract

This paper uses data from the 4th wave of the European Values Survey (EVS) to investigate the factors that in?uence the decision to participate in volunteering activities, considering both volunteering in general as well as volunteering in particular types of activities. Like previous studies we include several socioeconomic and demographic variables. However our study also includes attitudinal variables and country dummy variables that capture the impact of country speci?c factors. Our results show that there are signi?cant differences across countries in the propensity for volunteering and that the determinants of volunteeringare quite di¤erent for the various types of volunteering.
