Social Network Analysis in the Framework of Structural Equation Modeling, Dr. Zhiyong Zhang, November 18|19, 2021

Posted on Thursday, Nov 11, 2021
Social network analysis is useful for identifying the structural relationships among social entries. To promote the use of social network analysis and develop better methods for social and behavioral research, we propose a general structural equation modeling framework in which a social network can be treated as a new type of observed variable. Under the framework, we have investigated the roles of social networks as a predictor, an outcome, and a mediator. In this talk, I will present three studies to illustrate the application of the new framework.
