Prosocial behavior is a term used by social psychologists to refer to a broad category of actions that are considered to be beneficial to others and to have positive social consequences. One type of prosocial behavior is altruism--helping that is intended to provide aid to someone else with no expectations of getting something in return.

The goal of this exercise is to explore some of the factors that may influence altruistic behavior. Crosstabulation will be used.
