Keywords: social capital, indicators, innovation capital, relational capital, structural capital, hierarchy analysis method.

Abstract

Purpose. The aim of the article is to reveal the theoretical and methodological approaches to the assessment of social capital and to build a system of indicators of its formation and results of use in the agricultural sector.

Methodology / approach. The theoretical-and-methodological basis of the study are the conceptual provisions of economic theory, which allow determining the principles of creation and use of social capital. In the research we used methods of theoretical generalization, analysis and synthesis (to determine the object and objectives of the study); system approach (to identify components of social capital); systematization and classification (to determine the system of indicators that determine the formation and use of social capital); analysis of hierarchies (for comparative analysis of social capital of agricultural holdings).

Results. Based on a critical review of literature sources, scientific trends in the assessment of social capital were systematized. There are determined new conceptual approaches to the development of indicators of social capital of the agricultural sector for meso- and microlevels, which take into account industry specifics, are determined by groups of factors of its formation and results of use, and reflect the main components of social capital – innovation (norms), relational (trust) and structural (social networks) social capital. On the basis of the method of analysis of hierarchies the comparative it was carried out an estimation of factors of formation of social capital of two domestic agroholdings which results correspond to results of the analysis of indicators of results of its use

Originality / scientific novelty. The methodological bases of the analysis of social capital of the agrarian sphere through complex measurement of its components by means of system of indicators on meso- and microlevels taking into account branch features were improved, factors of formation and results of use of social capital were systematized.

Practical value / implications. The obtained results allow substantiating the key approaches to measuring the social capital of the agricultural sector, which makes it possible to obtain comprehensive information for decision-making regarding its further formation and effective use.
