Econometric Analysis of Network Data

This masterclass will provide an overview of econometric methods appropriate for the analysis of social and economic networks. Many social and economic activities are embedded in networks. Furthermore, datasets with natural graph theoretic (i.e., network) structure are increasingly available to researchers. We will review (i) how to describe, summarize and visually present network data and (ii) formal econometric models of network formation that admit heterogeneity, strategic behavior, and/or dynamics. The focus will be on the formal development of methods, but selected empirical examples will also be covered, as will methods of practical computation.
