Trust, Social Capital, and Subjective Individual Well-Being

Sociological Research. 2015. Vol. 54. No. 2. P. 121-133.

Three basic types of trust are examined in the context of the concept of social capital: general trust, institutional trust, and social trust. Data from a survey of values carried out by the Center for Comparative Social Research [CCSR] in the summer of 2012 in two federal districts of the Russian Federation are used to assess the level of trust in Russia. Structural equation modeling was used to test the survey's main hypothesis concerning the presence of a positive relation between level of trust and subjective satisfaction with life.
