Dear Socnetters,

could anyone point me towards studies that have used SNA to map migration patterns of health care personnel (particularly in Europe, but also worldwide)? Or has anyone heard of SNA being used as part of forecasting / modeling the future workforce needs, again particularly in the health care sector, but also in general?


I’d be very grateful for any and all of your suggestions – thank you!

Kind regards from the winter frosts of Finland,
