Abstract

This chapter reviews the literature on the causes of individuals' generalized social trust (trust in unknown others) from a wide-range of social science disciplines. We structure the review around two broad classes of explanations: dispositional explanations (trust as a disposition) and experiential explanations (trust as a response to individual experiences). Specific attention is paid to the potential for drawing causal inferences - based on quality of data, and the methods used - in the studies reviewed.
