Analyzes the measurement characteristics of sociometric ratings and provides an empirical comparison of the use of ratings and nominations in sociometric classification. Focuses on unlimited nominations as the way to include the perceiver perspective, arguing that rating scales enable researchers to collect refined information that reflects respondents' actual feelings about their peers in detail.
