New findings from the Johns Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project

Did you know…

Denmark, like its other Scandinavian neighbours, boasts a non-profit sector that is considerably larger than the all-country average (6.6 per cent of the economically active population, against an all-country average of 4.6 per cent). A significant proportion of that workforce (43 per cent) consists of volunteers.

Unlike its neighbours, however, over half of Denmark’s non-profit workforce is engaged in service activities, the result of changes in government policies in the 1980s and 1990s that moved Denmark closer to the model of a welfare partnership between government and the non-profit sector that is characteristic of Western Europe.
