Charity May Be Determined by the Gender of the Firstborn Child

A family's giving is affected by the sex of their firstborn child, revealed a new report.

A new report from the Women's Philanthropy Institute at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy finds that the sex of the firstborn affects the likelihood, amount and type of charitable giving that parents will engage in.

Dr. Debra Mesch, director of Women's Philanthropy Institute at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy said, "We found that among people who have had two or more children those with a firstborn son were more likely to give to charitable organizations and give larger amounts."

They found that families with first-born sons gave nearly 15% more than families with firstborn daughters and this could be attributed as "first-born son effect".

On the flip side, researchers call the "daughter effect", where parents who have an only daughter are more likely to give 20% more than parents with an only son.

The study was conducted in more than 13,000 people from a long-running research group, who looked at 10 years' worth of household giving data. The study is the sixth in a series called "Women Give" that focuses on gender differences in giving to charitable organizations.
