Donation nation: which state is most generous?

"Between October 2010 and September 2011, 70% of Aussies aged 14+ reported making at least one donation to charity in the previous 12 months. As of September 2015, this had slipped to 66%. Yet over that time the average annual amount given rose from $264 to $302.

Incidence of charitable giving is fairly consistent between the states, generally hovering around the national average – except for Western Australia, where 71% of the population are donors; and Tasmania, where 63% of residents give to charity"
