Helping others

Global study: Four in ten people help others a minimum of once a month

In the run up to Christmas, it is comforting to know that habits of generosity are still strong.

Our survey amongst the online population across 17 countries shows that four out of ten people help others or do volunteer work at least once a month or more.

This is made up of four percent who help others ‘every or most days’, 14 percent who do so ‘at least once a week’ and 21 percent who help others ‘at least once a month´.

  • Mexico, USA and Netherlands lead for populations who help others at least once a month or more
  • Men slightly ahead of women overall
  • 20-29 year olds lead across age groups

Countries included are Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Russia, South Korea, Spain, UK and USA.
