According to a WIN World Survey, 24% respondents over the world claim to have done voluntary work in the last few months.

A sample of 29,368 men and women from 40 countries across the globe was asked, “During the last 12 months, did you do any voluntary work, devoting time for a Not-for-Profit organization / NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) without receiving any wage or salary in exchange?” Only 24% of respondents in participating countries have done any volunteer work in the last 12 months, while 76% said they had not done any voluntary work.

Country-wise Analysis: Australian citizens do the most volunteer work

Australia (63.3%) and Paraguay (51.6%) results contrast with South Korea (5.1%) and Pakistan (4.6%) that are the countries with the lowest rates of voluntary work.
