The goal of this grant is to develop statistical methods and software for the joint analysis of networks and nadal attribute data. The methods will be based on extensions of well-studied and familiar data analysis methods such as factor analysis, linear regression and probit models. The project will provide: statistical tests and descriptions of the relationship between a network and nadal attributes. predicition and imputation of network information based on nodal attribute data. prediction and imputation of nodal attirbutes based on network data. estimation and inference in the presence of missing network and nodal data. a class of dynaic network models that can be extended into the time domain. open source statistical software that will be accessible to researchers.
