Income, Wealth, and Socialization in Argentina
The data used in this study provides individual-level information about the population's participation in social organizations and its willingness to trust members of their community. Argentina's participation rate is close to 20%. The country's trust rate depends on the question used to measure interpersonal trust. The more reasonable estimate puts the percentage of the population that trusts non-family members at 33%. The determinants of the probability of participation are age, household income, rural communities, and the individual's trust itself. The determinants of trust are age, household wealth, participation itself, and the community or provincial unemployment rates and income inequality.
