Abstract

En este trabajo se estudian los determinantes individuales del capital social en España. El capital social influye en el desarrollo económico, tal y como demuestran numerosos estudios, y se puede definir como la confianza, tanto interpersonal como institucional, y los aspectos positivos de las redes y las normas sociales que faciliten la creación y el mantenimiento de una estructura social adecuada que, en colaboración con otros capitales, permita sentar las bases para facilitar el crecimiento a largo plazo y, por tanto, un desarrollo sostenible. Analizándolo a nivel individual se puede hablar de que se trata de la habilidad de la personas para obtener recursos, principalmente a través de las redes sociales y el nivel de capital social depende de un amplio rango de características socio-económicas de los individuos (nivel de ingresos, nivel de estudios del individuo, del padre, de la madre, edad, género, etc.). Son, precisamente, estas características las que se analizan en este artículo, prestando especial atención al nivel educativo del individuo y de su entorno más próximo con el objetivo de comprobar si esas características afectan a su nivel de capital social, medido por la confianza, las redes o las normas sociales. Para ello, se utiliza la Encuesta Social Europea para el año 2008 y se plantea un modelo logit que nos permitirá conocer y analizar la importancia de los diferente es determinantes del capital social y en especial del nivel educativo.
