The concept of social capital and the ways in which social capital may be an important determinant of health is receiving increased attention from policy-makers. The Institute produced a report in 2004 based on its All Ireland Social Capital and Health Survey. 

The report explores how people feel about their health and highlights how this is linked with perceptions of the local social environment as well as to demographic and socio-economic circumstances and lifestyle behaviours.
