The main aim of this paper is to provide insight in the determinants of the decision to participate (yes or no) in volunteer work and the decision with regard to the number of hours spent on volunteer work. These decisions are empirically analyzed with Dutch microdata for 1982 by means of a logit and a tobit model. The results indicate that age, education, family culture and the position on the labor market in combination with sex are important determinants of volunteer labor supply.
