Social Network Analysis using Stata

Social Network Analysis is one of the most rapidly growing fields in social sciences. Social network analysis focuses on the relationships that exist between individuals (or other units of analysis) such as friendship, advice, trust, or trade relationships. As such, network analysis is concerned with the visualization and analysis of network structures, as well as with the importance of networks for individuals’ propensities to adopt different kinds of behaviours.

This workshop provides an interdisciplinary opportunity for social scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, ethnologists, epidemiologists, organizational theorists to acquire the necessary tools to enable them to independently analyse social networks in Stata. More specifically, the workshop focuses on:

  • nwcommands suite for Social Network Analysis
  • Network Visualization
  • Network Examination
  • Distance and Paths
  • Neighbours and Context
  • Centrality and Centralization
  • Changing Networks
  • Calculating with Networks
  • Network Simulation
  • Hypothesis Testing
  • Regression Based Hypothesis Testing

Course Leader: Thomas Grund - University College Dublin - Developer of the nwcommands suite.

Prerequisites: Basic working knowledge of the statistical software Stata.
