Multilevel Longitudinal Analysis of Social Networks

by   Johan Koskinen, et al.

Stochastic actor-oriented models (SAOM) are a broadly applied modelling framework for analysing network dynamics using network panel data. They have been extended to address co-evolution of multiple networks as well as networks and behaviour. This paper extends the SAOM to the analysis of multiple network panels through a random coefficient multilevel model, estimated with a Bayesian approach. This is illustrated by a study of the dynamic interdependence of friendship and minor delinquency, represented by the combination of a one-mode and a two-mode network, using a sample of 81 school classes in the first year of secondary school.
