Introduction to Social Network Data Collection with an Emphasis on Social Survey Methods
Presenter: David Tindall, University of British Columbia
This workshop is intended for relative newcomers to social network analysis. The workshop will provide an introduction to social network data collection with an emphasis on social survey methods. The workshop will consider a variety of related methodological issues such as research design, measurement, sampling, data analysis, and ethics, as well as the linkage of these issues to data collection. Different types of data collection techniques will be illustrated such as the name generator, position generator, and name roster. The different opportunities and constraints associated with data collection for whole versus ego-networks will be considered. Some discussion of non-survey techniques may also be provided. Some attention may also be given to mixed methods.
