The Culture of Giving: At the Crossroads of Religious and Non-Religious Donations
In regard to giving, this paper categorizes Canadians into four types: non-givers, religious givers, non-religious givers, and non-discriminatory givers. Using Statistics Canada data from the 2010 Survey of Household Spending, this paper employs multinomial regression techniques to study the likelihood of predicting these four giving types. This paper has found that income level, household size, and gender are significant in determining giver types. Provincial disparity exists in giver types, in terms of marginal effects, across Canada.
