Reconstructability analysis (RA) is proposed as a complementary method for evaluating social network-related phenomena. Longitudinal records of social behavior expression among members of a social network are commonly represented as a set of social network analysis (SNA) connections, but might also be usefully represented as a set of associations derived through RA methods. Reconstructability Analysis identifies individuals as being associated when their behavior patterns appear coordinated–a representation that is unavailable with standard SNA. To explore the potential usefulness of RA for analyzing social behaviors, simulated behavior patterns were evaluated with both SNA and RA, and the results were compared ...
