Abstract
OBJECTIVES
With an increasing number of studies highlighting regional social capital (SC) as a determinant of health, many studies are using multi-level analysis with merged and averaged scores of community residents’ survey responses calculated from community SC data. Sufficient examination is required to validate if the merged and averaged data can represent the community. Therefore, this study analyzes the validity of the selected indicators and their applicability in multi-level analysis.
METHODS
Within and between analysis (WABA) was performed after creating community variables using merged and averaged data of community residents’ responses from the 2013 Community Health Survey in Korea, using subjective self-rated health assessment as a dependent variable. Further analysis was performed following the model suggested by WABA result.
RESULTS
Both E-test results (1) and WABA results (2) revealed that single-level analysis needs to be performed using qualitative SC variable with cluster mean centering. Through single-level multivariate regression analysis, qualitative SC with cluster mean centering showed positive effect on self-rated health (0.054, p<0.001), although there was no substantial difference in comparison to analysis using SC variables without cluster mean centering or multi-level analysis.
CONCLUSIONS
As modification in qualitative SC was larger within the community than between communities, we validate that relational analysis of individual self-rated health can be performed within the group, using cluster mean centering. Other tests besides the WABA can be performed in the future to confirm the validity of using community variables and their applicability in multi-level analysis.
Summary
Korean summary
이 연구는 개인의 주관적 건강감에 미치는 지역 사회 자본의 효과를 보기 위하여 개인 응답치의 합산 평균한 자료를 지역 변인으로 활용하는 것이 타당한지 WABA 를 수행하였다. 분석 결과 다수준 분석을 하는 것이 적절치 않았으며 개인 수준의 사회자본에서 지역 수준의 사회자본을 뺀 값을 단수준 분석에 활용할 것을 제안하였다.

Abstract
Tuberculosis is one of the most prevalent diseases in North Korea. Despite some positive accomplishments by current aid projects, it is still necessary to investigate the existing aid system. The following are necessary for improvement: sustaining a high degree of expertise, cooperation among various related parties including the international community, mediation to induce this cooperation, a more active role of the South Korean government, and encouragement of North Korea to more actively participate. Achieving these will help solve the issues of current tuberculosis aid projects in North Korea and lead to more successful outcomes.

결핵은 북한의 주요 질병 중 하나이다. 기존 사업이 이루어낸 일부 긍정적인 성과에도 불구하고 북한 결핵사업의 문제들을 해결하고 성공적인 성과를 거두기 위해서는 기존 지원체계에 대한 반성과 함께 고도 전문성의 지속유지, 국제사회를 포함한 다양한 관련자들간의 협력, 이러한 협력을 이끌어낼 수 있는 조정능력, 남한정부의 보다 적극적인 역할, 북한 당사자의 참여유도가 필요하다.
