Social Capital
    Social capital is a topic of considerable interest to a wide range of people due to its links to individual and community well-being. The ABS has adopted the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) definition of social capital: "networks, together with shared norms, values and understandings which facilitate cooperation within or among groups".
