ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to explore the applicability of POUM (Prospect Of Upward Mobility) hypothesis in the social welfare volunteer participation. In other words, this study first examines the relationship between social class and social welfare volunteer participation, and then analyzes moderating effects of the prospect of upward mobility (POUM) on the relationship. To this end, 「2013 Seoul Survey」 data were used. A Zero-Inflated Negative Binomial Regression analysis taking into account interaction terms between social class and POUM was conducted. As a results, upper-middle class had significantly less participated in social welfare volunteer than lower-middle class(= reference group). And POUM had significant plus sign on the social welfare volunteer participation. The interaction terms between social class and POUM significantly moderated social class and social welfare volunteer participation, which empirically supports the POUM hypothesis of Bénabou and Ok (2001) in social welfare volunteer participation.
