Nice list. Thanks for compiling.  

I missed the start of this, so please forgive me if I'm going over well-trodden ground, but I'm surprised there is none of the van der Gaag/Snijders work on position/resource generators.

Van Der Gaag, M., and T. A. B. Snijders. 2005. The Resource Generator: Social Capital Quantification with Concrete Items. Social Networks 27 (1):1-29.

Martin van der Gaag has a website (http://gaag.home.xs4all.nl/work/) that collates a bunch of this information, including position and resource generator instruments. We have used these as the foundation for instruments we've developed in Colombia, China, Indonesia, and soon Rwanda and Uganda. We use these in a health/livelihood analysis framework.

Cheers,
Jamie

Most of these do not reflect structural measures of social capital, per se, but are mostly self-report indicators of the construct such as trust and reciprocity. Thanks for all those who send recommendations!
