Social Capital on Net-Bases: A Methodological Note

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The common attributes (as regards home town, school, work place, and so on), which we call 'net-bases,' connect the holders each other, often beyond time and physical space. When given two persons are connected through a common net-base, we see the tie as being embedded in a socio-centric network that is ideally defined by all of the attribute holders and their relations. We assume that the overall configuration of net-bases conditions the value accumulation process of social capital. In this conceptual framework, this paper develops a method of analyzing personal network data in order to examine the relationship between net-base configuration and social capital. Analogously as group affiliation of persons, we measure net-base affiliation of personal ties and specify matrices that represent two respects of the net-base configuration: multiplicity and linkage. We examine the relationship of these indices with social capital, and its difference between income strata.
