Using Network Analysis to Measure Social Cohesion: Complete versus Sampled Network Data

Jeffrey Smith, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Sociology


Jeffrey Smith, associate professor of sociology at UNL, leads the second virtual presentation of the MAP Academy’s Spring 2021 Methodology Applications Series.

The presentation covers the basic theoretical, methodological and substantive underpinnings of network analysis — which focuses on the relationships connecting actors, rather than on the properties of the actors themselves — and outlines how network analysis has been used to measure social cohesion.
