Voluntary work is an important contribution to national life. It meets needs within the community and helps to develop and reinforce social networks and cohesion.
In 2000, Tasmanian volunteers contributed approximately 18.7 million hours of their time; divided fairly evenly between males and females. Of all the time contributed, approximately 58.3% was undertaken by persons in ex-metropolitan areas (balance of Tasmania).
The median weekly number of hours contributed by volunteers was 1.5 hours. In the metropolitan area (Hobart Statistical Division), females contributed 1.9 hours a week while males contributed 1.1 hours. In the ex-metropolitan areas (balance of Tasmania), males contributed 1.7 hours a week while females contributed 1.2 hours.
