A multilevel approach is proposed to the study of the evolution of multiple networks. In this approach, the basic evolution process is assumed to be the same, while parameter values may differ between different networks. For the network evolution process, stochastic actor-oriented models are used, of which the parameters are estimated by Markov chain Monte(More)
Social discrimination, defined as the relative preference for intra-ethnic over inter-ethnic relationships, nter-ethnic relationships ultilevel p2 model eighborhood composition ocial discrimination was studied in pupils’ networks in Dutch secondary school classes. While native Dutch pupils (ethnic majority members) mainly named fellow majority members,(More)
The existence of ethnic boundaries in 20 pupils’ networks is tested by comparing the proportion of intra-ethnic to inter-ethnic relationships, while controlling for the distribution of intraand inter-ethnic dyads in pupils’ networks. Also, we tested if those boundaries are affected by the inclinations of network members in choosing intra-ethnic group(More)
The goal of the present study was to investigate three issues in the current debate on youth delinquency: (1) Whether the level of delinquency of adolescents is negatively correlated with the quality of her/his personal networks (as stated by the social inability model) or not (as stated by the social ability model); (2) Whether there is homophily in(More)
High school students can select class mates for new friendships using a repertoire of patterns. They can actively pursue new friendships, make use of the existing network structure, and/ or use the scarce and often erroneous information about candidates. In this theoretical paper, we argue that such selection patterns should not be studied as the result of(More)
This data is taken from the Dutch Social Behavior study, a two-wave survey in classrooms (Baerveldt, 2000). In 1994/1995 the first wave took place in 22 Dutch urban high schools. All pupils in the third grade of the intermediate educational level (‘MAVO’) of these schools were selected, resulting in a sample of 1,528 pupils aged between 13 and 18 years,(More)
This study investigated the relationship between adolescents' social support from parents and from peers. Three hypotheses were tested. The first hypothesis was that adolescents who experience little parental support will compensate with support from peers. A negative correlation would thus be expected between perception of parental support on the one hand,(More)
