ABSTRACT

This paper attempts to analyze citizens’ giving behavior by household income level. Particularly, it focuses on participation and amount of secular giving by using ‘Social Survey’in 2011, 2013, and 2015 from the Bureau of Statistics and employing Heckman selection model for statistical analysis. This study shows that citizens’ participation has a proportional tendency by their income level. Similar to participation of secular giving, citizens’ giving amount has also a proportional tendency by their income level. However, the degree of proportional tendency seems not to be significant in the case of amount of secular giving. This empirical analysis promotes understanding of participation and amount of secular giving by citizens’ income section in Korea by showing the differences. This paper provides meaningful empirical understanding regarding citizens’ secular giving behavior by their income level. In addition, it offers important clues to motivate relevant prospective studies and develop social agenda which contribute to strengthening giving culture in Korea.
