Abstract

This study examined the association between social capital, at both the individual and the community level, and self-rated health among older adults in China. Using data from the 2008 Pilot Survey of China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study, a series of multilevel logistic models were estimated in SAS 9.2. The association between social capital and self-rated health was examined among 996 adults aged 45 or older from two provinces in China, while controlling for demographic characteristics and socioeconomic variables. Our results suggest the significant association between certain aspects of social capital, at both the individual and the community level, and self-rated health. The individual-level social capital in the form of perceived help in the future and the social capital of community in the form of the availability of amenities and associations within the community were significantly related to self-rated health. A significant cross-level interaction effect between individual- and community-level social capital was also observed. © The Author(s) 2013.
