Abstracts
This paper empirically investigates various factors affecting the variations in the size of the non-profit sector using a cross-country data in the sample of selected countries. Namely, the available data on sector employment (workforce) indicate substantial variations in the size of the sector among countries, although certain problems exist with measurement of the sector size, mostly related to its diversity. The existing literature can provide several theories, hypotheses and concepts that could potentially help to explain those differences, those approaches ranging from economic, political, social, organisational, and even interdisciplinary ones; the outcome of those approaches is the extrapolation of various factors that affect differences. The research approach taken in the paper is focused on combining the effect of those factors for the purpose of their
empirical verification. The results indicate that supply side factors tend to be more important in explaining differences in the size of the sector among countries.
