  1. Note: nj = neighborhood; ni = individuals. Variance of the empty model was 0.161 (0.036). All models are controlled for individual (age, sex, nationality, and SES) and neighborhood (highest income quintile, urbanity of the municipality, home maintenance in the neighborhood) level characteristics. Model 3 to 5 are additionally controlled for change of neighborhood social capital between 1998 and 2002.
