Social capital and especially trust are the foundation of most personal relationships and a key factor of many economic and social outcomes. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of social capital on subjective well-being, controlling for individual and national effects. Our original empirical approach addresses the problem of endogeneity between social capital and subjective well-being, using a non-recursive mixed-process model, with bootstrapped standard errors accounting for the sampling design. This strategy also makes it possible to differentiate the specific effects of trust and voluntary association membership on subjective well-being.
