volunteer, types of organizations for which they volunteer, the 
activities in which volunteers participate, and the prevalence of 
volunteering more than 120 miles from home or abroad. It will also 
provide information on civic engagement and charitable donations.
    Because the Volunteer Supplement is part of the CPS, the same 
detailed demographic information collected in the CPS will be available 
about respondents to the supplement. Thus, comparisons of volunteer 
activities will be possible across respondent characteristics, 
including sex, race, age, and educational attainment. It is intended 
that the supplement will be conducted annually, if resources permit, in 
order to gauge changes in volunteerism.
