Network Analysis: A Second Course
This workshop covers advanced methodology for network analysis. Topics to be covered in lecture and lab sessions include p* (the new exponential family of random graph distributions) and approaches to longitudinal network data (such as actor-oriented models like SIENA). Generalized blockmodeling (fit with software Pajek) and general estimating equations (as used by econometricians and networkers for the analysis of data measured over time) will be introduced, though not extensively covered in labs. The morning and afternoon sessions are coordinated so that each day presents methodological developments in the morning with afternoon computer lab sessions enabling applications to real data. The workshop will meet each day from 9:00 a.m. ? 6:00 p.m. with a break for lunch. This workshop assumes that participants have already taken a first course in network analysis, such as the ICPSR Summer Program workshop "Network Analysis: An Introduction."
