[SSJ: 6017] Re: NGO/NPO Statistics
From: Vincent K. Pollard
This is in response to Ryan Hartley's question.
In 1995, I heard a presentation that Terrence George gave at the Center for Philippine Studies, the University of Hawai'i-Manoa. He had a marvelous comparative grasp on numbers of NGOs -- and the comparative density of "networks of networks of NGOs" from one country to another.
At the time, Terrence George was a program oficer with the Ford Foundation. Unless I am mistaken, he subsequently has worked professionally as a program officer with the Consuelo Zobel Alger Foundation -- and perhaps other organizations.
Along with a thorough literature search, I'd recommend trying to contact him.
Meanwhile, another likely source for data or referrals is the United Nations Development Programme.
