Abstract:

"This research brief, Volunteer Growth in America: A Review of Trends Since 1974, provides an in-depth look at how volunteering compares by age groups for the period from 1974 to 2005. While previous reports released under our Volunteering in America series have looked at volunteering over the past four years, this report presents a historical view of volunteering through an analysis of data collected in 1974, 1989, and 2002-2005 from the Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS is a comprehensive and scientifically rigorous survey of 60,000 American households conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition to the two volunteer surveys administered in 1974 and 1989, the Census Bureau has administered a volunteer survey each year since September 2002 with the Corporation's support. It is our hope that this report will help us capitalize on Americans' interest in volunteering and generate more opportunities for people to begin or deepen their commitment to volunteering."--Page 1.
