Hi all- I'm working with a complicated study design, and I'm having
trouble wrapping my head around the analyses. Any thoughts would be
We are collecting ego-centered network data from a target participant,
in which he or she will list 30 alters, and rate connections between
each pair. Then, we are collecting identical data from the target's
Significant Other (SO). That is, the SO will be independently listing
and rating 30 alters, which may or may not be the same as the target's
list. One of the things we're interested in is the amount of overlap in
the networks between the target and the significant other.
Because the networks won't be identical between target and SO, I'm not
sure how to combine them while still retaining the idiosyncratic
perceptions of the two raters. Any ideas? Could this somehow be
conceptualized as 2-mode data, with all alters able to belong to the
target's network, the SO's network, or both?
(To further complicate things, we'll be collecting this data at 2 time
points, and hopefully analyzing changes over time. But one step at a
Thanks for any suggestions you may have!
