Volunteering and Social Capital in Regional Victoria.
Bailey, Susan; Savage, Sally; O'Connell, Bev
Australian Journal on Volunteering, v8 n2 p5-12 2003
An Australian survey (n=1,837) compared volunteers (22% of sample) to nonvolunteers. Volunteers were more likely to be socially active and engaged in activities building elements of social capital such as reciprocity and trust. More rural than metropolitan residents volunteered, but there were more similarities than differences between the groups. (Contains 18 references.) (SK)
