  1. Note. Rate of reciprocated outbound support = the amount of X-support ego exchange mutually with their alters compared to the overall amount of X-support ego seeks from their alters. Rate of reciprocated inbound support = the amount of X-support ego exchanges mutually with his/her alters compared to the overall amount of X-support their alters seek from ego. Rate of multiplex support = the proportion of X-support that ego combined with Y-support seeks from their alters compared to the overall support ego seeks with regard to X- and Y-support from his/her alters. Rate of multireciprocated support = the amount of X-support ego seeks in exchange for Y-support from their alters compared to the overall X-support ego seeks from his/her alters and the Y-support their alters seek from ego
