Abstract: Regional development is currently perceived as a multifaceted process, using components, properties and events occurring in spaces. The direction and dynamics of development depend on many factors. Diagnosing endogenous and exogenous factors is very important. The basis is the activating of soft resources, which consists of population, human and social capital. The article presents definitions and differences between demographic, human and social capital as factors of regional development. An important issue indicated by the author is the assessment of capital quality in space, allowing to estimate the supply of development opportunities of the selected territory and identify the inequalities. The aim of the article is to answer the following questions: what is population capital, and what is human and social capital? What are the methods of measuring or the approach to measuring these capitals? What impact do these capitals have on regional development?
