Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Social Networks   #211100


This measure is an interviewer-administered questionnaire to assess whom respondents depend on for help in important general matters and specific health matters.


This measure captures each of the respondent’s network members and a complete assessment of network structure to construct the respondent’s social network and those network members whom they rely on for help with health-related and other matters. Social networks are known to affect the decisions people make and have been shown to affect health outcomes related to mental and physical health (Pescosolido & Wright, 2004; Stein et al., 1995).
