The social relation network of officials has an important effect on official promotion. Nowadays the measurement of the network is focused on the individual network of officials, and the research about measuring the whole network between officials is scarce. This article collects the samples from 154 Governors since 2000, defines and measures the Governors network from the view of the whole network through Ucinet, a Social Network Analysis software. Based on the identification of network border, the article defines the Governors network as the direct and indirect relation set of Governors having worked in the same province, and analyzes the density and centrality of the network. What’s more, it carries on the expanded research, trying to explore the relationship between Governors network and official promotion. It will increase the measurement index of social network and provide reference for more quantitative research on the relation between social network and official promotion.
