Americans give more to help others than the residents of 152 other countries, according to a new global survey.
The poll, conducted last year with about 1,000 residents in each of 153 countries, tried to find out how many people donated money to a charity, volunteered their time, or helped a stranger in the previous month.
Following closely behind the United States (with a score of 60) was Ireland, with a score of 59, Australia (58), New Zealand (57), and the United Kingdom (57).
