This study investigates the factors affecting the improvement of social capital in rural settlements in the study area. While in the traditional view of management, economic, physical and human capital play a fundamental role. But, in the new perspective, settlements need more social capital improvement. Because, without improving social capital, it will not be possible to use other capitals optimally. A settlement that lacks sufficient social capital destroys other capital as well. Therefore, the issue of social capital is considered as a fundamental category. The findings of the present study, which was conducted by descriptive-survey method and based on a questionnaire, indicate that individual, social, economic and institutional factors have a significant relationship with social capital. The results of path analysis showed that individual factors with a total effect of 0.739 and economic factors with a total effect of 0.6361 have the greatest impact on social capital in rural settlements of Esfahan, respectively, and structural-institutional factors with a total effect of 0.174 less.
