Social Capital 4: an Empirical Exploration of Relationships among Individual-Level Social and Human Capital Attributes and Self-Rated Health Status in Saskatchewan, Canada
AbstractStimulated by the finding (Kawachi et al., 1997) that social capital in communities may mediate the relationship between income inequality and health status, this article describes relationships between individual-level elements of social capital -trust, commitment and identity in the social-psychological dimension; participation in clubs and associations and civic participation in the action dimension- and self-rated health status, before and after controlling for human capital.
