Contact between network members (density network) (LSNa056)

Identification variable: ANWPAIR
apairctc direct contact in pair
Can you tell me which of these ... people are regularly in touch with one another without any involvement on your part? I will list pairs of names. You will notice, however, that not all names will be considered. For certain family members (e.g. parents and children, siblings) it is rather evident that they are in touch with one another regularly without any involvement on your part. The category "not asked, yes" applies to household members and children (in law), respectively, where it is evident that they regularly interact with one another without any involvement on the part of R (reltionships between household members and children and children-in-law). The category "not asked" applies to a pair in which for one one the network members permission was refused by anchor to be in the network study. Is ... regularly in touch with ...?
Kunt u zeggen welke van deze ... personen rechtstreeks, buiten u om, regelmatig met elkaar contact hebben? Ik noem steeds twee namen, en ik sla sommige personen over die familie van elkaar zijn. De antwoordmogelijkheden zijn steeds: "nee, zelden of nooit" en "ja, regelmatig of vaak".
apctc probability of contact
For relationships with missing data on the contact, the probability of having contact was estimated on the basis of the relationships for wich valid data were obtained by means of a logistic regression with having contact (values 2 and 3 on variable apairctc) and not having contact (value 1) as dependent variable and the sex of both network members, the contact frequency within the relationship with anchor and the type of the relationship with anchors as independent variables. In that analysis, 85% of the relationships were classified correctly, and the -2 log likelihood decreased from 35392.9 to 16750.1.
anpair # pairs of network members
anwdens density in selected part of network (Anchor excluded)
Computation from original variables:
get file 'lsna056.sys'.
aggregate /outfile 'temp.sys' /break respnr /anpair = N /anwdens = sum(apctc).
get file = 'temp.sys'.
compute anwdens= anwdens/anpair.
compute anpair = anpair/2.
format anpair (f2) anwdens (f4.2).
variable labels anpair 'possible number pairs'.
