Prospective Longitudinal Surveys
Social participation has long been linked to health outcomes and survival, but not until the studies published during the past decade has social participation been addressed as an aspect of social capital. Thus, only a limited portion of the previous studies concerning social participation and population health can be acknowledged in the field of social capital and health studies. Some of the studies concerning social participation and survival that will be reviewed below do not refer to social capital as their theoretical starting point. Nevertheless, they are discussed here because they include such characteristics that fit in the common definitions and frameworks of social capital.
