Testing the association between social capital and health over time: a family-based design.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The past decade has seen a vast increase in empirical research investigating associations between social capital and health outcomes. Literature reviews reveal 'generalized trust' and 'social participation' to be the most robust of the commonly used social capital proxies, both showing positive association with health outcomes. However, this association could be confounded by unmeasured factors, such as the shared environment. Currently, there is a distinct lack of social capital research that takes into account such residual confounding.
