Economics, like other human sciences, involves with uncertainty in the estimates. It might be due to the unconsidered variables. Meanwhile, a revisionary survey with regards to the specificity of charity for other aspects of human economic behavior may increase the precision of such science. In addition, previous studies have shown, altruistic behavior improves productivity, employment, education, environment, and so forth. This study is an attempt to verify the altruistic behavior. Thus, with the separation of selfish behavior, altruistic behavior within the household, and the altruistic behavior outside the household the present study would introduce quantitative indicators with the aim of calculating the effect of different variables on the index. Data from the household budget has been prepared from 2004 to 2008. The panel data was applied and the results confirmed the hypotheses.
