Questionario e guida pratica per la misurazione del capitale sociale
[Questionnaire and Guide Book for the Measurement of Social Capital]


  • Sabatini, Fabio


Questo paper presenta un questionario e una guida pratica per la misurazione del capitale sociale. Il lavoro vuole costituire un vero e proprio manuale rivolto a ricercatori, studenti e docenti, consulenti di impresa e operatori del terzo settore che per qualsiasi ragione, dalla redazione della tesi di laurea alla valutazione dell’assetto organizzativo di un’azienda, siano alle prese con la misurazione del capitale sociale e di altri fenomeni poco tangibili ma economicamente rilevanti. In questo contesto, il capitale sociale è trattato nelle sue molteplici sfaccettature. Ciascuna dimensione è fotografata da un gruppo di domande, elaborate a partire dalle considerazioni fornite dalla letteratura teorica oppure dagli spunti provenienti dalla ricerca empirica. This paper presents a guidebook and a questionnaire for the measurement of social capital. Our aim is to provide researchers, teachers, students, and practictioners with a set of practical instructions and tools to carry out empirical research on social capital and other related intangible assets.
