In this talk, I introduce a novel data source, the NetHealth dataset, combining six ego-network survey panels collected over a two year period on a cohort of about 500 college students with unobtrusive behavioral data on electronic communication between each participant and every alter elicited in the name generator. I will examine the empirical linkages between sentiments (strong or weak emotional attachments), interaction frequencies, role-relations (status as friend, kin, acquaintance), socio-demographic similarities (homophily), and the provision of support and other exchange relations.
