Abstract:

Subjects (N = 343) were students at a Dutch and Canadian university who provided ratings of sympathy and financial assistance for victims of ten international disasters. Canadian subjects expressed greater sympathy and gave more money from a personal windfall than did Dutch subjects. Females overall expressed greater sympathy, although males and females provided equal amounts of assistance.
