Description

The Econometric Analysis of Network Data serves as an entry point for advanced students, researchers and data scientists who are seeking to perform effective analyses of networks, especially inference problems. It introduces the key results and ideas in an accessible, yet rigorous way, confining formal proofs to extensively annotated appendices. While a multi-contributed reference, the work is tightly focused and disciplined, providing latitude for varied specialties in one authorial voice. Each of the six worked examples describes relevant computational tools and provides a number of illustrative examples that are supported by a companion site code repository.

Key Features

  • Answers both the ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions in network analysis
  • Describes multiple worked examples from the literature and beyond, allowing empirical researchers and data scientists to quickly access the ‘state-of-the-art’
  • Supported by a companion site code repository that details simulations and representative empirical applications in Python, MATLAB and C++
  • Includes 40+ diagrams of ‘networks in the wild’ that help visually summarize key points

Readership

Graduate students, first year PhDs, and active researchers in economics, computer science, statistics and related fields. Also relevant to data scientists in industry including Google, Amazon, Facebook and startups
