quickly, i'm looking for key references on social support networks: what
causes them, what they effect. that's really broad, i know. more
specifically, i'm wondering if there is work that shows that environmental
uncertainty (political, social, economic, and/or physical) can encourage
network formation and that those networks help to mitigate the effects of
an uncertain environment for individuals.
also, is there any work that variation in network position correlates with
variation in perceived uncertainty? i.e. the more centrally located you
are, the less likely you are to feel that the environment is uncertain?
thanks in advance for your guidance.
