An empirically-based assessment of the operational procedures routinely used in network analysis reveais serious measurement deficiencies that render spurious images of network structure. Based on explicit, exhaustive measurement along three basic relational dimensions, an alternative approach is described that resolves these problems. The three dimensions (type of relation, the relation’s existential status, and level of analysis) combine to create a general framework for classifying and assessing a range of relational operational procedures in terms of measurement capability and inference potential.
