I'm currently working on a project collecting network information from a community
health coalition and am looking for any scholarly references to work that has examined
optimal size or thresholds of network rosters given to survey respondents. Is there any
work that has looked at what size or at which point the quality of your data starts to
decrease? How many names and relationships can a person cognitively process at one
time before fatigue sets in and you have to start worrying about data quality? Measurement, meaning, and psychometric properties of network survey questions has
been an interest of mine for years, but I haven't seen many publications about the topic,
so am hoping some on this list can help.
