In recent studies, a direct effect has been observed between altruism and economic progress, through the strengthening of human capital and the promotion of efficiency and productivity. This study identifies the socioeconomic characteristics that determine the altruistic behavior in 60 countries. The methodology used is based on the estimation of two ordered logits and data from the World Values Survey wave 6. Results suggest that all forms of capital (social and human) and economic resources as membership in unions and income have a direct and statistically significant impact when it comes to playing an active role in voluntary organizations.
