The researchers report that the hospitals

* that the quantity of volunteer hours demanded is a decreasing function of their costs; and
* is influenced by productivity, output, and labor market institutions.
The report appears in the Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Dec. 2005. Narasimhan.Srinivasan@uconn.edu
