However, J. Clyde Mitchell collected together many of the representative papers written during this second wave of field studies and was able to provide an overarching framework in which methodological and substantive disagreements could clearly be distinguished from one another. In the process, he also built bridges to the more formal interpretations of networks which were being developed in the United States at the time. , a work group, a voluntary organization), analysis could still largely be carried out by inspection, or, more colloquially, "eyeballing" of the data.
Young and Willmott were thus suggesting a fruitful set of hypotheses which could later be tackled directly by other scholars. Finally, in one particularly interesting chapter in Family and Kinship in East London, Young and Willmott describe the way in which the migration of families from Bethnal Green to "Greenleigh" was facilitated 2: Kin, Friends, and Community 31 and orchestrated by networks of kin-connections. This notion of a network-based process underlying patterns of migration—what we now refer to as a migration-chain-effect—has subsequently become one of the most important areas in structural analytic research.
13b exemplify this. A higher proportion of all possible ties are made in the latter than in the former. This is reflected in their respective densities. 3% = 132 Network A, then, is considerably less dense than network B. Simple visual inspection of these graphs, however, can be deceptive: network B is far less dense than it appears to be at first sight. By creating a formal density measure, as this example indicates, structural analysts were able to significantly improve upon the more intuitive notions of "dense" and "sparse" patterns of interaction which had been common before it was introduced.
