They were selected by multistage random sampling. The personality traits of altruism in the 18 indices in a five-choice range were never, sometimes, usually, most frequently and always measured, and the role of school year, age, gender, etc. As related factors in the three altruism categories, Risky altruism and simple altruism were statistically analyzed by chi-square test.
