According to the the 2013 American Values Survey (AVS) conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute:
- Americans overall reported, on average, a social network of 3.4 people out of a maximum of seven people. Overall, people named in these networks are slightly more likely to be immediate family members (an average of 1.8 people) than non-immediate family members (an average of 1.5 people).
- Among White Americans, 91 percent of people comprising their social networks are also White, while five percent are identified as some other race. Among Black Americans, 83 percent of people in their social networks are composed of people who are also Black, while eight percent are White and six percent are another race.
- Among Hispanic Americans, 64 percent of the people who comprise their social networks are also Hispanic, 19 percent are White, and nine percent are another race.
