7 (CrossSectional) Social Networks Social Network Analysis [6] Social Network: Tool to formally represent and quantify relational social structure. Relations can include: friendships, workplace collaborations, international trade Represent mathematically as a sociomatrix, Y, where Y ij = the value of the relationship from i to j (c) Sociogram (d) Sociomatrix
8 Social Networks that are harder: Social Network Analysis [7] Networks that change over time (ties, nodes, discrete, continuous, models, data) (effectively) Unbounded networks (the internet, social contacts in the world) Multiple social networks (friendships, cowork, leisure) Multimodal networks (people and places) Valued networks (amount of trade, signed networks) Event networks ( , armed conflict)

10 Why do we want to analyze social networks? Social Network Analysis [9] Because it s cool and fun. Because we want information we can t get other ways. Learn about nodes Learn about relations Learn about processes Learn about the particular network Learn about the process the network came from

12 What can we know about a social network? Social Network Analysis [11] All nodes, all relations All nodes, some relations Some nodes, some relations Others we won t emphasize here: Attributes of nodes (where do your facebook contacts live?) Attributes of relations (who is your *best* friend?) Information on processes over the network (how much trade between countries?)
13 PartiallyObserved Social Network Data Social Network Analysis [12] Some portion of the social network is often unobserved.
14 Partial Observation of Social Networks Sampling Design: Choose which part to observe: Ask 10% of employees about their collaborations Egocentric Adaptive Outofdesign Missing Data: Try to survey the whole company, but someone is out sick Boundary Specification Problem: Should a contractor be considered a part of the company?

29 The HorvitzThompson Estimator of a Total Social Network Analysis [28] I have a sample of students in a classroom and I want to estimate the total amount of money spent on textbooks in the class. ˆT HT = π i s i Where y i is the amount spent by student i, and π i is the probability i sampled. E( ˆT HT ) = i P op V ar( ˆT HT ) = y i y i π i = π i i P op j P op i P op ij y i π i y j π j y i = T Where ij = π ij π i π j Where ˇ ij = π ij π i π j π ij ˆ V ar( ˆT HT ) = i s j s ˇ ij y i π i y j π j
30 Social Network Analysis [29] HorvitzThompson Estimator for Number of Edges How many friendships are in a classroom? I choose a simple random sample of n students, from a classroom of N students. I look at the web space of each student in the sample, and identify all other students in the class with whom they share friendships I use this data to form a HorvitzThompson estimator for the total number of friendships in the classroom ˆT HT = i s V ar( ˆT HT ) = i s j / s or j>i j / s or j>i π ij k s l / s or l>k ij,kl y ij π ij y kl π kl y ij Where ij,kl = π ij,kl π ij π kl
31 The π ij s Social Network Analysis [30] π ij = 1 ( N 2 n ( N n ) ) = n(2n n 1) N(N 1) for i j π ij,kl = p(exactly one end of each sampled) + p(two end of one, one of the other sampled) + p(both ends of both sampled) ) ) = 2 2 ( N 4 n 2 ( N n) ( N 4 n 3 ( N n) + ( N 4 n 4 ( N n) ) for i, j, k, l unique.
32 LinkTracing Designs and HT Estimation Social Network Analysis [31] Consider: π i = 1 ( N mi n ( N n) ) Where m i is the number of initial students that would have landed i in the sample. 1Wave linktracing: m i = 1+ number of friends of i, observed! 2Wave linktracing: m i = 1+ number of friends and friends of friends of i, NOT observed!
33 Social Network Analysis [32] Limitation: Sampling probabilities often not obserable Observable sampling probabilities under various sampling schemes for directed and undirected networks. Sampling Nodal Probabilities π i Dyadic Probabilities π ij Scheme Undirected Directed Undirected Directed Egocentric X X X X OneWave X k Wave, 1 < k < Saturated X Nodal and dyadic sampling probabilities are considered separately. X indicates observable sampling probabilities, while a blank indicates unobservable sampling probabilities.

36 Social Network Analysis [35] Modeling Social Network Data  Independence Models logitp (Y ij = 1 X) = β 0 + β 1 (same sex) + β 2 (i older than j) +.. Logistic regression form. Each pair (dyad) independent of all others. Scientific questions answered by comparing estimated coefficients, β i, to 0.
37 Social Network Analysis [36] More complex models: Exponentialfamily Random Graph Models Sometimes, we are interested in more complex relational structures. Need to look at whole graph at once, can t separate dyads. Exponentialfamily Random Graph Model (ERGM): (Holland and Leinhardt (1981), Snijders et al, (2006),... ) P β (Y = y) = c(β)e β 1g 1 (y)+β 2 g 2 (y)+... g(y) represent components of the social process c(β) is the normalizing constant
38 Social Network Analysis [37] Fitting Models to Partially Observed Social Network Data Two types of data: Observed relations (Y obs ), and indicators of units sampled (D). P (Y obs, D β, δ) = P (Y, D β, δ) Unobserved = P (D Y, δ)p (Y β) Unobserved β is the model parameter δ is the sampling parameter If P (D Y, δ) = P (D Y obs, δ) (adaptive sampling or missing at random) Then P (Y obs, D β, δ) = P (D Y, δ) P (Y β) Unobserved Can find maximum likelihood estimates by summing over the possible values of unobserved, ignoring sampling Sample with Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC)

43 Example: Friendships in a School Social Network Analysis [42] From the National Longitudinal Survey on Adolescent Health  Wave 1: Each student asked to nominate up to 5 male and 5 female friends Sex and Grade available for 89 students, 70 students reported friendships.
44 Example: Friendships in a School Social Network Analysis [43] Scientific Question: manner? Do friendships form in an egalitarian or an hierarchal Methodological Question: Can we fit a network model to a network with missing data? Is the fit different from that of just the observed data? P (D Y, δ) = P (D Y obs, δ) (missing at random) Does observed status depend on unobserved characteristics?
45 Structure of Data Social Network Analysis [44] Up to 5 female friends and up to 5 male friends 89 students in school 70 completed friendship nominations portion of survey
46 Example: Friendships in a School Social Network Analysis [45] Fit an ERGM to the partially observed data, get coefficients like in logistic regression. Terms in the model: Density: Overall rate of ties Reciprocity: Do students tend to reciprocate nominations? Popularity by Grade: Do students in different grades receive different rates of ties? Popularity by Sex: Do boys and girls receive different rates of ties? Age:Sex Mixing: Rates of ties between older and younger boys and girls Propensity for ties within sex and grade to be transitive (hierarchal) Propensity for ties within sex and grade to be cyclical (egalitarian) Isolation: Propensity for students to receive no nominations

54 Conclusions, School Friendships Example Social Network Analysis [53] Nominations are reciprocated at a higher rate than random Males receive nominations from other males at a higher rate than females from females Nominations within grade are more likely than outside grade Nominations of older students are more likely than younger students Nominations within sex and grade are more consistent with a hierarchal rather than egalitarian structure More students receive no nominations than we would expect at random.

56 Injection Drug User Example Social Network Analysis [55] Simulations corresponding to U.S. Center for Disease Control study of Injection Drug Users in New York City Injection Drug Users (IDU) asked how many IDUs they know, and HIV tested. Given 2 coupons to pass to other IDUs they know, to invite them to join study. Sampling continues until sample size 500 (from simulated population 715).

65 Injection Drug User Example Social Network Analysis [64] Scientific Question: What proportion of Injection Drug Users in New York City are HIV positive? Methodological Question: Can we estimate population proportions from samples starting at a convenience sample of seeds? P (D Y, δ) = P (D Y obs, δ) (adaptive sampling) P (D Y, δ) = P (seeds Y, δ)p (D Y, δ, seeds) = P (seeds)p (D Y obs, δ, seeds) but typically P (seeds Y, δ) P (seeds Y obs, δ)
66 Structure of Analysis Social Network Analysis [65] Sample: Linktracing sampling variant  RespondentDriven Sampling Ask number of contacts  but not who. Can t identify alters. No matrix. Network used as sampling tool Existing Approach: Assume inclusion probability proportional to number of contacts (Volz and Heckathorn, 2008) Assume many waves of sampling remove bias of seed selection Our work: Designbased (describe structure, not mechanism) Fit simple network model to observed data (modelassisted) Correct for biases due to networkbased sampling, and observable irregularities
67 Generalized HorvitzThompson Estimator Goal: Estimate proportion infected : N Social Network Analysis [66] µ = 1 N j=1 z i where z i = { 1 node i infected 0 node i uninfected. Generalized HorvitzThompson Estimator: i:s ˆµ = i =1 π 1 z i i i:s i =1 π 1 i where S i = { 1 node i sampled 0 node i not sampled π i = P (S i = 1). Key Point: Requires π i i : S i = 1

76 NetworkModel Estimator Social Network Analysis [75] Key Points: Goal: Estimate inclusion probabilities to use to weight sampled nodes If we knew the network, we could simulate sampling to estimate inclusion probabilities Approach: 1. Use (weighted) information in the data to estimate network structure 2. Use simulated sampling over estimated network to estimate inclusion probabilities 3. Iterate steps (1) and (2)

88 Methodological Social Network Analysis [87] NetworkModel estimator corrects for differential activity by infection status, unlike sample mean. NetworkModel estimator uses appropriate sample weights for simulated high sample fraction, unlike sample mean or VolzHeckathorn estimator. NetworkModel estimator corrects for seed bias, unlike any existing method.
