Essentially, yes.  However, could regression analysis have taken place
without SNA in the study you have in mind?

I realize my initial query may be interpreted widely.  This is great
because there are issues I hadn't considered.  However, isn't it
standard practice to identify multiple methods in any study when it's
done?  Or, is this something that journal editors are responsible for?
Or, is it the responsibility of author and editor?

Hi Romero -
What do you mean by other methods?  So if a measure is constructed using

SNA and then put into a regression model, is this using two methods (SNA

and regression)?
Best,
Jim
