I have been a graduate student studying SNA in general, and social
influences on adolescent smoking in particular, for several years now. I am
currently working on my proposal for my dissertation, and am running into a
few snags. The dataset that I had planned to work with has been made
unavailable, so I am currently looking for other options.
I am looking for a dataset measuring networks of friendship nominations at
the grade level (all 8th graders, etc.) for an adolescent sample in one or
more schools. I am hoping to find a longitudinal sample (2 time points, 6
mos to 1 year apart) with network measures at both time points. I also need
measures for smoking status or experimentation with smoking, gender, and
I am more than happy to give co-authorship to anyone who can help me out.
If you have anything even remotely similar to what I'm looking for and are
willing to collaborate, please respond!
