The UC Berkeley Social Networks Study, or “UCNets” seeks to improve our understanding about our social lives, how we spend time with family, friends, and others. Research shows that people’s social connections affect their health and happiness. So, learning more about people’s relationships is an important task for health researchers.
In this panel study of social ties, it will be possible to see how a person’s connections change as a result of life changes, such as marriage or divorce, moving, retiring, illness, and other events. Because people’s personal networks shape physical and emotional well-being, understanding how and why networks change will have important health implications, especially as Americans encounter changing families, new lifestyles, and economic challenges.
