Social capital as social networks. A new framework for measurement
Fabio Sabatini ()
No 83, Working Papers from University of Rome La Sapienza, Department of Public Economics
The contribution of this paper to the social capital literature is twofold. Drawing on the Italian data, it firstly develops a new framework for measurement, allowing to build indicators for five different components of the multidimensional concept of social capital. Secondly, it provides a single, synthetic, measure capturing that particular configuration of social capital which the literature generally associates with positive economic outcomes.
