You need statistical software such as Stata or SPSS to analyse the data. In case your research context only requires some descriptive information, we recommend our online information system GeroStat which offers tables and bar charts of basic FWS indicators. Additionally, the reports of the Survey on Volunteering provide ample information, figures and tables of all survey years and thus are a comprehensive base for many volunteering-related topics.
