Hierarchical Mixed Membership Stochastic Blockmodels for Multiple Networks and Experimental Interventions

WithTracy M. Sweet, Andrew C. Thomas, Brian W. Junker

Quantitative methods for analyzing social networks have primarily focused on either single network statistical models (e.g., Airoldi et al., 2008; Hoff et al., 2002; Wasserman and Pattison, 1996) or summarizing multiple networks with descriptive statistics (e.g., Penuel et al., 2013; Moolenaar et al., 2010; Frank et al., 2004). Many experimental interventions and observational studies however involve several if not many networks.
