概要 This study examines the impact of social capital on the poverty of rural households in eastern Bhutan with a particular attention to the participation in community groups, which can be a proxy for structural aspect of social capital. By employing a simultaneous equation model of two-stage probit least squares (2SPLS), this study reveals that social capital positively contributes to poverty reduction in Bhutan. This study also finds that non-farm income is important for poverty reduction in rural areas. Our results, however, indicate that poor households in remote areas are discouraged to participate in community groups.
