Abstract

While PSM studies have already shown it is a determinant of the frequency of volunteering, it is unclear how PSM is associated to intensity when volunteering. This chapter introduces the concept of vol­unteering intensity as a supplement to the usual assessment of volunteer­ing in terms of time and frequency.This is particularly important because it emphasizes a quality dimension that cannot simply be captured in time- and frequency-based evaluations of volunteering, therefore giving another layer to the analysis. The chapter first addresses the issue on conceptual grounds and then tests the relation between PSM and volunteer­ing intensity in a sample of 324 British volunteers.
