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

Abstract: 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.
