Abstract: 

This paper studies the effects of the social capital and its components on life satisfaction among the youth. Upon reviewing ideas the prominent classical theorists have put forward on the concept of social capital, we begin to deal with the theoretical as well as the empirical relationships as proposed to exist between social capital and life satisfaction. The approach used here is a combined or incorporative one. This is a survey-method research and the data has been collected through interviewing 410 young individuals between 15-29 years of age residing in urban section of the Paveh Township. Descriptive results of the study have shown that the degree of the youth's life satisfaction is medium but the degree of their social capital is estimated as high. Analytical results have also shown that among the different variables of social capital, the variable of knowledge and attention to social, political and public affairs have the most explanatory effect on life satisfaction situation.
