Abstract:
Using comparable cross-section data on expenditures and labor force in the nonprofit sector for a sample of 25 nations, I test a series of hypotheses about their determinants. A small number of variables, of which the level of economic development and the role of government, are the most important and can explain over half of the variance in the sample in most cases.
