Voluntary work definition
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am a PhD student at the University of Birmingham. I am using the Understanding Society Wave 2 dataset to research characteristics of the people who state they volunteer. It would be useful to understand how the study defined volunteering i.e. does the definition include formal and informal voluntary activity? I have looked at your website, but I have not had much look in finding out. I would be very grateful if you could provide some information on this, or contact details for who to ask.
Thank you for your help in the matter, and I look forward to hearing from you.
