Abstract

Drawing on survey data, this study carries out an assessment of the Italian regions’ endowments of social capital and of its relationship with well-being and the quality of development. The contribution of the paper to the literature is threefold: first, we advance a framework for the measurement of social capital acknowledging the very multidimensionality of the concept. Second, we study the correlation between each social capital’s dimension and a series of possible outcomes. Third, we discuss the role of public policies in the creation of social capital.
