Abstract

Since the 1990’s, Korea has witnessed a dramatic increase in volunteer activities. In 2008, the participation rate of women in volunteer work was 19.9% with an average of 1.72 hours volunteered per person on a weekly basis. This can be interpreted as 20% of the population is volunteers, 74.1% of which are women. Despite the fact that volunteer work has an enormous contribution to improving one’s life quality, mere efforts have been observed in measuring its economic values. This study empirically analyzes the economic values of female volunteer work and the influence of tax deduction on female participation in volunteering and volunteer time. The estimation of the economic values of volunteer activities produced the result that the volunteer population aged 20 years and older performed volunteer service valued at 3,495 billion won, among which men’s contribution amounted to 2,392 billion won, 1,293 billion higher than women’s 1,103 billion won.
