Ageing SNA Data


It’s been a while since I was collecting data for some organisational SNA but I recently had cause to look back at this work which describes assigning weights to each data source. Many people have since left the organisation studied which is, in itself, easy to know about from org charts or HR records but what about people who in the past shared a lot of email or IM but no longer do? Should recent data be given more weight than historic data? I’ve searched for some guidance but not found any, does anyone in this forum have any advice?
