Fully linked or integratedIntegration Network
Not linked or integrated at all- We do not work together at all and have separate program goals.
Communication- We share information only when it is advantageous to either or both programs.
Cooperation- We share information and work together when any opportunity arises.
Coordination- We work side-by-side as separate organizations to achieve common program goals.(e.g., efforts are coordinated to prevent overlap but perform our tasks as separate organizations)
Collaboration- We work side-by side and actively pursue opportunities to work together as an informal team. (e.g., attempt to find ways to work together but do not establish a formal agreement or contract- “in the spirit of collaboration”)
Partnership- We work together as a formal team with specified responsibilities to achieve common program goals. (e.g., have formally identified common goals and areas of responsibility for each organization, usually outlined in a Memorandum of Understandingor other type of agreement)
Fully linked or integrated- We mutually plan, share staff and/or funding resources and evaluate activities to accomplish our common goals.

The aim of this Project was to create a map of the tobacco control leadership within the US DHHS. Using social network analysis, we:
A map of this sort is important to guide strategic planning for tobacco policy by identifying strengths and challenges related to intra- and inter- agency awareness, communication, and partnerships.
Respondents were asked to answer five questions about their colleagues and other DHHS agencies in tobacco control. The responses to these questions were used to develop five networks in five areas:
We used a web-based survey to collect data; the response rate was 92.5% (50/54 respondents).
