- Brazil: Defining the Nonprofit Sector (1993)
Comparative Nonprofit Sector Working Paper #9 | Leilah Landim.
The notion of nonprofit organizations is unfamiliar to Brazilian social and economic thought, but it is gradually gaining prominence. Ties the emergence of the nonprofit sector to the close links between the Church and the population. Indicates a shift in the last decade of the nineteenth century where voluntary organizations came up on their own and covered more diverse areas of political and professional interests. Studies the relationship between the fiscal sector and the nonprofit sector, as well as the legal status of these organizations. Discusses the reemergence of the relationship between the Catholic church and the State as a mechanism to maintain social order.
- Brazil: Nonprofit Institutions Satellite Account, 2002 (2010)
Instituto Brasilerio de Geografia e Estatistica (IBGE) produced this pilot non-profit institutions satellite account for Brazil for the year 2002 in partnership with the Center and UN Volunteers. The results of this study show that the nonprofit sector in Brazil represents a significant economic force, employing a sizable share of the workforce, and contributing to the Brazilian economy on a par with other major industries. In the process, the report demonstrates the feasibility of generating regular, detailed economic data on the nonprofit sector in Brazil at a level of detail not available through other sources. It is our hope that the report will lead to a permanent system for generating satellite accounts in the country to document the role and activity of the country’s important nonprofit institution sector. The findings show that the nonprofit sector value added in Brazil was about 34.2 billion Real (USD$26.4 billion) in 2002. Including the value of volunteers, this translates into a nonprofit sector that accounted for approximately 2.3 percent of the aggregate value of the economy in 2002.

- Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project Methodology
The Johns Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project sought to develop a common base of data about a similar set of “nonprofit” or “voluntary” institutions in a disparate set of countries. This required that we resolve five critical methodological and conceptual challenges including selection of a set of differing countries for testing theories; clearly defining what was meant by “nonprofit” or “voluntary” organizations; development of a classification scheme; identification the most meaningful aspects of these organizations to focus on for data-gathering purposes; and devising a way to collect reliable data on these aspects in a cost-efficient fashion. This document describes how the Center went about these tasks and provides more detail on the actual sources of data used in various countries.
