The study of social networks focuses on relationships among the units of some population, and on how the structure of these ties affects outcomes experienced by both the units and the population. Often the units are persons or individuals, but they may be families, households, corporations, or nation states.

Social network analysis is a set of methods for describing, quantifying and analyzing the properties of social networks. This seminar is survey of statistical methods for analyzing social network data. It will focus on testing hypotheses about:

  • network structure (e.g. reciprocity, transitivity, centralization),
  • the formation/dissolution of ties based on attributes (e.g. homophily),
  • local structural effects.

Starting April 8, we are offering this seminar as a 3-day synchronous*, remote workshop for the first time. Each day will consist of a 4-hour live lecture held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

The fee of $895 includes all course materials.
