Network Epidemiology

This chapter describes the comparative local network data collected in two related studies of HIV-related behaviors in Uganda and Thailand in the mid-1990s. The Thai survey was based on a cluster sample of about 1,700 17–45 year old low-income men, and about 700 female commercial-sex workers. The Ugandan survey used a representative household-based cluster sample of about 1,600 men and women aged 15–49 from the district of Rakai. The local network module was very similar in the two surveys, collecting information on the attributes of the respondents and their three most recent sexual partners, attributes of the partnerships, geographic network information, and behaviors within the partnerships. The chapter reviews the study design, fieldwork experience and measurement of network characteristics, and concludes by presenting a sampling of findings from studies using the network data.
