1 THE ROLE OF SOCIOGRAMS IN SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS Maryann Durland Ph.D. EERS Conference 2012 Monday April 20, 10:30-12:00

2 FORMAT OF PRESENTATION Part I SNA overview 10 minutes Part II Sociograms Example 1-25 minutes Part III History & Development 10 minutes Part IV Sociograms Example 2 25 minutes Part V Questions &Answers 20 minutes

3 PART I - WHAT IS SNA? Methodology for analyzing relational data Uses matrix data for analysis (graph theory, matrix algebra) Uses sociograms or maps for visualization and data (graph theory, visualization of data) Uses both simple & complex algorithms (matrix algebra, graph theory) Is focused on the whole -structure, patterns, systems (history) Looks at both the whole & parts within context of whole (history) Has multiple applications aligned with theories (support, structural holes, leadership, diffusion) 3

4 RELATIONAL DATA Relational data means that in some form or another the data measures a connection between two points. The two points might be cities and the connection could be railroad lines, or one way streets, or stop lights, or friendships, co-memberships, support, etc. SNA begins with the connection or absence of a connection between two points Points might be towns, street corners, staff, a classroom, members of a group, a team, an organization, etc.

5 TYPES OF RELATIONSHIPS People to people, but also: Activities Actions Events Materials & Resources Ideas etc. 5

6 Communities of practice RELATIONAL DATA COMES FROM RELATIONSHIPS coaching exchange kinship Diffusion of methods power Teams innovation Leadership groups trust gossip mentoring Matrix org communication Working Relationships Knowledge networks conflict Sharing info friendship Communities of Practice advice Club membership influence Research 6

7 RELATIONSHIPS Defining Relationships Based on theory support, leadership Based on behavior defined by program or project Combination of both Measuring Relationships Align measure to behavior Use multiple measures Look at all levels (as results indicate, or aligned to theory) Network Sub-groups Individual 7

8 IMPORTANCE OF SOCIOGRAMS IN SNA Foundation for SNA - History Has features or characteristics that can and cannot be measured (graph theory) Adds context to measures (graph theory, program theory, social science theory) Locates the position within a network, based on a measure, which is different from a rank or score.

9 PART II READING SOCIOGRAMS Nodes & lines Direction/or not Coded by attributes or measurement This line is a bridge This is a tree Person 2, 3, and 1 form a clique Person 2 is a cutpoint Square Nodes Non-directional lines No attribute or measurement info One network (person 1-5) Person 2 has an Indegree of 3. Persons 3, and 1 have an Indegree of 2. Who is in a better or more critical position? 9

10 EXAMPLE 1: COLLABORATION AND SPREAD OF TEAMS WITHIN NETWORK Frequency of connections How are teams connected What is the structure of connections (pairs, cliques, ego network, etc.) How is the overall structure organized? (grade levels, peers, across grades) 10

11 SOCIOGRAMS Sociograms are created by software programs that use algorithms to plot the nodes and ties or lines. Among other elements in the formulae, these algorithms include four basic rules for creating a sociogram; push unconnected nodes away from each other, pull connected nodes closer together, adjust for line length, so that lines are not too long or too short, and position nodes and connections to minimize line crossings.

12 SCHOOL 1 THE BIG PICTURE Team members are yellow Highly connected to each other, and central to the network (connected to others as well) Edges of sociogram nonrespondents, few choices, etc. 12

13 RECIPROCAL VIEW CODED BY AREAS The bold lines indicate mutual connections. Square nodes are team members, within their grade levels. This map is by grade levels (Primary, elementary and middle). Many reciprocals are by grade level, but not all. 13

19 PART III. HISTORY Jacob Moreno developed the sociogram. In the beginning it was a piece of paper, with people as the points, and their connections to each other as lines. (1930 s) Additions to the field were from many fields including anthropology, sociology, matrix algebra New fields developed such as graph theory During the middle 1980 s computer technology and speed prompted interest 2012, now at a heightened level of interest, from data analysis to visualization

20 GRAPH THEORY The mathematical study of the properties of the formal mathematical structures called graphs. Simple Graphs Trees Gear Graphs

21 DIFFERENCES NETWORK ANALYSIS VS. STUDY Network Analysis Whole structure Structural features, Structural characteristics, Subsets of the whole and/or Individuals within the whole Sociograms Data Analysis Some statistical analysis Network Studies A network measure is used as an attribute Generally only one measures, as an individual score, but not connected to the whole 21

Use referrals is an anticipated behavior that will occur as a result of this project. This implies a connection, or a relationship Center Client Medical Specialist This connection is the behavior 27

28 QUESTIONS TO ASK: GO BEYOND THE ASSUMPTIONS OF THE STATED What program components indicate a relationship? (target population use referrals from health centers, to specialists, other services?) Can you define the relationship(s)? (From direct relationship with health centers to new relationships; also the centers to the specialists ) Who are the actors, groups, etc in the relationship(s)? (target population, health centers, specialists, other.) What behaviors, actions, and activities would you expect in this relationship and by whom? (Target population initiates new relationships, what is role of centers? How does the relationship(s) contribute to the success of the project or to understanding the project 28
