ABS consultation findings on the collection of volunteering data

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) have released the findings from their 2017 consultation on the collection of volunteering data in the ABS.

The findings of the consultation are positive, with the ABS responding to Volunteering Australia’s 2015 definition of volunteering and feedback reported in 32 submissions, which will allow for future GSS collections to capture a broader range of volunteering activity and characteristics.
