In mapping social networks, investigators have confronted the following choices in the selection of an instrument to assess networks: (1) qualitative versus quantitative approaches; (2) subjective versus objective criteria; (3) synchronic versus diachronic descriptions. Evolving out of fieldwork with discharged mental patients, the Network Analysis Profile was designed to resolve these methodological dilemmas. Although it has not been completely successful in meeting this goal, the Network Analysis Profile offers distinct advantages over other instruments. A description and an illustration of its use are provided.
