Indonesia placed tenth on the report, which is “the world’s largest survey of charitable endeavors around the world,” Charities Aid Foundation said in its website.
The WGI report surveyed over 1.3 million respondents in 125 countries to compile their data. The document also “analyses data from the past ten years, uncovering trends in people’s charitable actions through times of economic crisis, economic recovery, and geopolitical unrest.”
The World Giving Index report particularly focused on three charitable measures:
• Helping a stranger
• Donated money to a charity
• Volunteered time to an organization

The WGI put the United States as “the number one country on the WGI report for the last ten years, with a score of 58%. Of those surveyed, 72% reported helping a stranger, 61% reported donating to a charity, and 42% reported having volunteered their time to an organization.”
