Abstract

The exploration of social capital formation on national level is a multipurpose task. The aim of this article is to analyze each component of aggregate social capital in Greece and to measure social capital across Greek regions. Through the comparison with other European countries it is concluded that several components of social capital in Greece may be characterized as weak. In addition, differentiations across Greek regions concerning the total stocks of social capital and each of its elements are observed. Through the article the need for further research is emphasized mainly on the formation of social capital and its consequences on several aspects of the Greek society.
