Danville Region Social Capital Survey 2009
From the Executive Summary:
The 2009 Danville Region Social Capital Survey was conducted by the
Center for Survey Research (CSR) at the University of Virginia, at the
request of the Danville Regional Foundation. This telephone survey of
1,026 randomly selected individuals living in the City of Danville,
Pittsylvania County and Caswell County, NC was conducted in April 2009.
. . . Previous research has shown that a community with abundant social
capital is better able to meet the economic needs of residents, defend
the area’s political interests, fend off external threats, and protect
the quality of life of its residents. Specialists in community
development have long recognized that if social capital can be
strengthened in a community, then the capacity of that community to
provide for its residents is enhanced. For all these reasons, it is
important to the long-range plans of the Danville Regional Foundation,
and the communities it serves, to better understand the state of social
capital in the Danville region.
The Danville Regional Foundation also post the report and information on the survey at www.danvilleregionalfoundation.org.
