Household Income, Household Size and Charitable Giving
Authors: Alan Chan
This paper explores the relationship between religious and non-religious giving among Canadians. This paper examines the relative percentages given to religious and secular organizations using pooled data from the Canadian Survey of Household Spending between 2012-2015. The results show that secular giving increases at almost twice the rate of religious giving in response to income increases. In summary, the percentage given to religious organizations decreases with income, but increases with household size and age.
