integr8: Social capital survey

Social Capital: How connected are we?


When a group of neighbours informally keeps an eye out for each other's homes, that's social capital. When you stop to pick up a bottle in the street that someone else dropped to keep other passers-by safe, that's social capital too. And when a friend doesn't think twice about bumping your resume to the top of the pile to improve your chances of a job, that's social capital also. So too are e-mail exchanges among members of a cancer and other recovering support groups.  Social capital can be found in friendship networks, neighborhoods, churches, schools, sporting clubs, civic associations, and even pubs, as Robert Putnam, author of "Bowling Alone" tells us, the motto in Cheers "where everybody knows your name" captures one important aspect of social capital.
