Description :
A biennial survey conducted in New Zealand cities provides data that enable the control of selection effects with propensity score matching methods, while also benchmarking the results by means of regression methods. They confirm that homeownership exerts positive impacts on the formation of social capital. At the sametime, homeownership demands greater accountability of local government and leads to reduced satisfaction with local government performance, thereby negatively impacting on community social capital. Hence these two dimensions of housing related social capital work in opposite directions from each other, a finding whichhas not been previously observed.
