***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear colleagues, I am new to this list but I was hoping someone would be able to help me. I am currently building my database and I was trying to construct the Berkman-Social Network Index (by Berkman and Syme 1979), which represent specific social network activities. I have got the same questionnaires like in the MONICA-Study. Some colleagues, who work with the MONICA data constructed the Social Network Index too. But to do so there is the need to use some weights, which I cannot find. There should be some more information about the weights in the Doctoral dissertation by LF, Berkman and in a WHO manual called MOPSY (1989). But both sources I am not able to find. So I am wondering if anyone knows more and have some information about the weights or got the literature. Any feedback will be much appreciated.
