Egocentric Network Analysis: Advances in Data Collection
Ann McCranie, Erin Pullen, Bernice Pescosolido, Indiana University Network Science Institute
We are interested in recent developments in the collection and analysis of egocentric data, such
as: name generators, sampling methods, field methods, decision-making models, mixed method
approaches, and in-depth studies of meaning. Other works that address novel uses or advances
are welcome, as are efforts to improve reliability and validity in egocentric research.
