Abstract
This paper examines and empirically tests theories of media exposure,
cultural capital, government intervention, and social disorganization to predict
geographic variation in social capital nationally at the county scale of analysis.
Secondary data are derived from Applied Geographic Solutions Inc., the U.S.
Census Bureau’s Population and Housing Summary Tape Files and Census of
Governments, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reports.
Geographic information systems, bivariate, and multivariate statistical methodologies
are used. Results show that county social capital is partially formed by
demographic structure, patterns of cultural engagement, government expenditure,
media use, and residential settlement. Thus, social capital is made by a complex
entanglement of factors with a clearly definable political and geographic logic.
