International Social Survey Programme

Social Networks

The ISSP Social Networks module series comprises two surveys conducted in 1986 and 2001. A third module with the slightly changed title “Social Networks and Social Resources” is planned for 2017. Successive surveys are always partial replications of earlier surveys.

ISSP Social Networks modules mainly deal with issues, such as contacts between family members, number and nature of contact with close friends and questions on who the respondents would ask for support and help.
