I've got your standard communication matrix of approx 30 actors with the option to indicate frequency of communication (several times daily, Daily, weekly etc.). What is the standard protocol when two participants differ on degree of frequency ? For example if actor A reports a weekly interaction with actor B, but actor B reports "several times daily" with Actor A - what do you do ? One is tempted to "split the difference" but that doesn't seem to be terribly scientific ! There's a couple of refs around that discuss the issue of no interaction reported, vs. an interaction and the theoretical decisions to be made in that case, but few that discuss frequencies - any suggestions ? Cheers, Glen.
