World Giving Index
The Charities Aid Foundation has just launched the ‘World Giving Index’, the first report of its kind looking at charitable behaviour across the world. Using data from Gallup’s Worldview World Poll CAF looked at three different types of charitable behaviour – giving money, giving time and helping a stranger and used the results to produce the ‘World Giving Index’.
Australia and New Zealand topped the Index. Malta was found to be the country with the largest percentage of the population (83%) giving money, the people of Turkmenistan are the most generous with their time with 61% having given time to charity and Liberia was top of the list for helping a stranger (76%).
The study also found that being happy is more of an influence on giving money to charity than being wealthy.
