In addition to Tom Snijders' et al's lovely article on multilevel analysis
of ego-centered networks, there is Wellman & Frank which does a lot of
substantive analysis along with the methodological explanation. I
reccomend reading both articles. Wellman-Frank:
Barry Wellman and Kenneth Frank. "Network Capital in a Multi-Level World:
Getting Support in Personal Communities." Pp. 233-73 in Social Capital:
Theory and Research, edited by Nan Lin, Karen Cook and Ronald Burt.
Chicago: Aldine DeGruyter, 2001.
Good draft is also on my website.
