ResumenIn this paper, we present results of a national (7 cities) personal network study carried out in Argentina during 2006. The relation between sociability and neighborhood is examined, stressing the idea that neighborhood unfolds as a complex, multidimensional phenomenon that spreads from past experience to present relations, creating new connections but also consolidating existing ones. Additionally, the interplay among economic status, educational status, personal ties and neighborhood sociability is explored, summarizing descriptive analysis of the information gathered after a name generator based survey.
