This workshop will provide an introduction to analyzing egocentrically sampled data with exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs) for statistical network analysis. It will be a hands-on workshop demonstrating how to fit, diagnose and simulate both static and dynamic ERG models from such data, using the 'ergm.ego' package, part of the integrated statnet software collection in R. Topics covered in this session include: a review of approaches to analyzing egocentrically sampled data, an overview of the statistical theory that supports the use of ERGMs for egocentric samples; defining and fitting ERGMs to egocentric data; interpretation of model coefficients; goodness-of-fit and model adequacy checking; and simulation of complete networks from the specified ERG models. statnet is an open source collection of integrated packages for the R statistical computing environment that support the representation, manipulation, visualization, modeling, simulation, and analysis of network data.
