Keyword:  Social CapitalAnt TribeComposition;
Abstract: The "ant tribe" means the inhabiting group of low-income university graduates.This population is usually referred to as the fourth disadvantaged group with Chinese farmers,migrant workers and laid—out workers.A survey which was carried out by the scholar named "Lian Si" found that nearly 80%of the "ant tribe" came from the countryside or county-level cities.It is very true that ant tribe’s composition is the result of the interaction between social and individual factors.However,social capital is playing a vital role in it.Therefore this article attempts to analyze the composition of "ant tribe" from three aspects of social capital’s possession,operation and reciprocation and clarify the reason why the identity of "ant tribe" and the region of countryside have been more accessible.
