Social capital is unequally distributed in society with people of higher social class having greater access to multiple group memberships, which can be a source of social support. In the context of COVID-19, social capital may be crucial in predicting people’s capacity to co-operate with government guidelines during the pandemic. The current project examines how social class standing influences the social support people have received and given during the pandemic, and how that in turn predicts compliance and citizenship behaviour.
