Education and volunteering

January 30, 2008

Individuals with higher levels of educational attainment volunteer at higher rates than those with less education.

Volunteer rates by educational attainment, persons 25 years and over, September 2007 (percent)
[Chart data—TXT]

Among persons age 25 and over, more than 4 in 10 college graduates volunteered during the year ending in September 2007. In comparison, fewer than 2 in 10 high school graduates and almost 1 in 10 of those with less than a high school diploma volunteered in that period.

These data are from a supplement to the September 2007 Current Population Survey. Find out more in "Volunteering in the United States, 2007," (PDF) (HTML) news release 08-0090.
