The classic work is Holland and Leinhardt 1973 (http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/0022250X.1973.9989825#.VFkgIvldV8E). I would follow citation chains forward from that.

Hi all,

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. 

Thanks,

Janet
