This paper investigates linkage between social capital and individual health using multilevel analysis. Data for the analysis is based on 9,248 people over 65 years old living in 28 school districts in Chita peninsula. Results show that school-district-level contextual effects are found for average income and social capital. Importantly, it is argued that without adopting a multilevel approach, the debate on linkage between individual health and social capital cannot be adequately addressed.
