Reliance of local community on its own resources for promoting quality of life and resolving its collective problems has been the Focus of schools such as communitarianists, JH:!V right, new left and the third ,vay. The basis of these approaches is enhancing capacities and mobilizing resources on a local level. It seems that cognitive and structural social capital together serve as suitable analytical concepts for identifying the potential for prcsocial behaviours and sociahvelfarc in different communities. Any measurement cf social capital, therefore, implies measurement of a society's potential to govern itself. Drawing on both micro (personal) and macro (urban areas) levels, the present paper aims at showing factors affecting social capital in different urban districts, and the relationship of social capital with other capitals. The findings indicate the structural variation of social capital in different urban districts. Social capital on both subjective and structural levels is directly related to physical capital.
