Based on 2008 data, the report offers a rather detailed picture of the scope and the depth of the ways in which we give our time in service to others. Statistics are available at the national level. They also are available for individual states. Wyoming's latest volunteerism information can be found here.
A few highlights that stick out to me this morning:
- 132,100 Wyoming residents volunteered their time in 2008, 32.4 percent of our state's population (29.6 percent of adults). We rank 16th amongst the 50 states and DC.
- We donated 40.1 hours per individual, placing us 19th amongst the 50 states and DC.
- The value of that human power is an estimated $331.2 million.
