Territories in modern Latvia differ immensely when compared on the grounds of social capital. Last ten to twenty years have introduced negative socio-economic development, population decline and other factors that mostly affect rural areas. In order to better understand the qualities of social capital the study was focused on Jaunpils county (novads) with an appropriate population size for in-depth analysis. The aim of this study is to discover the factors that influence and determine society’s social activity by analysing the social structure from the standpoint of social activity and its geographical dispersion. Analysis of data collected from Jaunpils municipality and statistical information as well as qualitative methods - interviews and observations were used. Research results indicate that active society and its social interactions is a precondition for liveliness of the place and maintenance of positive social environment where the portion of active individuals (leaders) and well organised and structured social activity are a key factors.
