Webinar Recording: Introduction to Social Network Analysis: Broad Overview and a Demonstration of a Novice’s Guide Using R Statnet

Jun 28, 2018 | Christina Baum

On June 28, NACCHO hosted a webinar on conducting social network analyses–what they look like and how they can be applied. Webinar participants were also led through an explanation and live demonstration of a recently developed toolkit from the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, A Novice’s Guide: Social Network Analysis Using R Statnet, which includes basic terminology and steps for conducting a social network analysis using free data analysis software.

By the end of this webinar, participants were able to:

  • Describe a social network analysis, including general terminology;
  • Identify potential applications for social network analyses; and
  • Locate and apply a toolkit that provides step-by-step instructions for a sample social network analysis.
