Social Capital Dimensions Are Differentially Associated with COVID-19 Vaccinations, Masks, and Physical Distancing [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Background: "Social capital has been associated with health outcomes in communities and can explain variations in different geographic localities. Social capital has also been associated with behaviors that promote better health and reduce the impacts of diseases. During the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, social distancing, face masking, and vaccination have all been essential in controlling contagion. These behaviors have not been uniformly adopted by communities in the United States. Using different facets of social capital to explain the differences in public behaviors among communities during pandemics is lacking."
