Abstract [en]

The structure and determinants of trust are analyzed using questionnaire data from a sample of Japanese and Swedish university students. A salient characteristic of this analysis is that it considers various dimensions of trust. There are similarities and differences between the two countries in the relative magnitude of trust belonging to those dimensions. Family trust does not reduce various kinds of trust. It can be inferred from the responses of economics students that education and culture are important determinants of trust. Those who rely heavily on signals for trust decisions are less cooperative and less trustworthy. Some interpretations are given.
