In this paper, we compare the correlation among formal and informal volunteering and self-perceived health across Mediterranean European countries after controlling for socio-economic characteristics, housing features, neighborhood quality, size of municipality, social and cultural participation and regional dummies. We find that informal volunteering has a significant, positive correlation with self-perceived health in France, Spain, Greece and a significant, negative relationship in Italy.

Abstract

In this paper, we compare the correlation among formal and informal volunteering and self-perceived health across Mediterranean European countries after controlling for socio-economic characteristics, housing features, neighborhood quality, size of municipality, social and cultural participation and regional dummies. We find that informal volunteering has a significant, positive correlation with self-perceived health in France, Spain, Greece and a significant, negative relationship in Italy.
