Abstract
  • This thesis develops a class of models for inference on networks called Sender/Receiver Latent Class Exponential Random Graph Models (SRLCERGMs). This class of models extends the existing Exponential Random Graph Modeling framework to allow analysts to model unobserved heterogeneity in the effects of nodal covariates and network features. Simulations across a variety of conditions are presented to evaluate the performance of this technique, and an empirical example regarding substance use among adolescents is also presented. Implications for the analysis of social networks in psychological science are discussed.
