Which countries are the most thoughtful?

The Top 50 Societies for Elderly CareThe Most Thoughtful Societies Index examines a range of factors related to thoughtfulness, such as volunteering rates, charitable donations, and support for the elderly to identify the most considerate societies in the world.

Prepared by, a company that helps people show feelings, empathy, and compassion for others, the study established three areas that indicate how compassionate and thoughtful societies are: philanthropy, equality, and family.

Every country in the world was then ranked according to a variety of factors in each category, before the top 50 countries with reliable data were studied in greater detail.

“At MyPostcard, we thrive on the fact that people are thoughtful by nature and express their thoughtfulness in many different forms,” the organization said on its website. “Given this, we thought it would be interesting to benchmark countries on measurable factors that demonstrate their level of thoughtfulness and compile an index of the Most Thoughtful Societies.”

Among the results are:

  • The Netherlands ranks as the most thoughtful society in the world, followed by Canada and Finland. The United States ranks No. 10.
  • People from Indonesia make the most private donations to charity in the 50 nations studied. Australia and the United Kingdom rank second and third.
  • People in the U.S. do the most volunteering, followed by New Zealand and Indonesia.
  • Saudi Arabia ranks the highest for elderly support provided by family members. The United Arab Emirates and Thailand rank second and third.
