World Giving Index

The "World Giving Index" is 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 

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 ..
