Motivation: Increasingly noted phenomenon is the impact of economics on social relations, for example due to existence of strategic networking between individuals, to gain advantage at labour market. It is believed to lead to erosion of interpersonal relations. Aim: The aim of the article was empirical verification of main theories concerning the size of social networks of individuals. It is to the point of verification whether economic factors influence construction of the social networks of individuals, and whether we are justified in blaming the economic system for progressing atomization of society. Materials and methods: For verification of theories, the econometric methods for count data, used on microdata were applied. More specifically, a negative binomial regression with a logarithmic link function was used. Results: There was no significant impact of socioeconomic factors on size of social groups. The results imply instead significant impact of evolutionary and chance factors.
