Department of Human Developmentand Family Studies, Cornell UniversityRecent theoretical developments emphasize that social interactions are dynamicand reciprocal, and this has led to widespread use of time-series data on behaviorin two-person systems. In principle, such data allow one to separate the influencesof two actors on each other, Statistical methods currently being used, however,are deficient in several respects. In this article, we show that a statistic proposedby Sackett and later… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Sequential social network data
A new method is proposed for the statistical analysis of dyadic social interaction data measured over time based on loglinear models for the probabilities for various dyad (or actor pair) states and generalizes the statistical methods proposed by Holland and Leinhardt (1981), Fienberg, Meyer, & Wasserman (1985), and Wasserman (1987) for social network data.

Analyzing Sequential Categorical Data on Dyadic Interaction
Recently there has been a change in focus from the study of one organism over time to the study of the social interaction between organisms. This change in focus has brought with it a renewedExpand
A General Framework for the Statistical Analysis of Sequential Dyadic Interaction Data
Recent interest in sequential dyadic interactions has motivated researchers to develop methods appropriate for the analysis of such data. After briefly reviewing a series of methodological papersExpand
A New Method for Analyzing Sequential Processes
Researchers studying sequential processes (e.g., marital conflicts, teacher-student interactions, etc.) often try to model how recent events affect current events. A researcher doing so faces severalExpand

A multilevel log-linear model is presented that can specify and estimate indicators of individual behavioral tendencies and antecedent-consequent relationships among behaviors, both within and across samples of families. Expand
Computing lag sequential statistics on dyadic time interval data: The TLAG program
The TLAG program is described, a program written in ffiM-BASIC that produces lag sequential statistics on two concurre~t streams of interval codes and mother-infant interaction research is used to illustrate the use of TLAG. Expand
Analysis of behavioral durations in observational studies of social interaction.
A method for analyzing and interpreting variation in the durations of coded behaviors obtained during dyadic or triadic social interaction by recording the interactive behaviors as qualitative codes is introduced. Expand
The Analysis of Sequence in Social Interaction
Although all behaviors occur over time, it is relatively uncommon for the temporal order or sequence of behaviors to be a matter of great interest in psychological research. Thus sequence, anExpand
Quantifying family process: issues in the analysis of interaction sequences.
The analysis of behavior sequences can be a useful technique for understanding family process and has been increasingly employed as a result of developments in family theory. Some of the most popularExpand
Modeling heterogeneity in social interaction processes using multilevel survival analysis.
The authors discuss the limitations of traditional approaches to the analysis of social interaction and demonstrate improvements in the ability to model individual differences now available in existing software. Expand


Detecting cyclicity in social interaction.
This article reviews spectral and cross-spectral analytic methods for detecting cyclicity, cross-cyclicity, and lead-lag relationships in continuous data derived from the observation of dyadicExpand

The analysis of multidimensional contingency tables when some variables are posterior to others: a modified path analysis approach
S-UMMARY Models and methods for analyzing the relations among a set of polytomous variables, when some of the variables are posterior to others, are presented. The techniques proposed here yieldExpand
The Multivariate Analysis of Qualitative Data: Interactions among Multiple Classifications
Abstract For the m-way contingency table, we discuss both the direct estimation of the multiplicative interactions among the m variables, and the indirect testing of hypotheses pertaining to theseExpand
Some Methods for Strengthening the Common χ 2 Tests
Since the x2 tests of goodness of fit and of association in contingency tables are presented in many courses on statistical methods for beginners in the subject, it is not surprising that x2 hasExpand
How Destination Depends on Origin in the Occupational Mobility Table
A reanalysis of the expanded version of the 1949 British cross-classification table of respondent's occupation by father's occupation features two models that emphasize the "achievement" rather thanExpand
Statistical aspects of the analysis of data from retrospective studies of disease.
The role and limitations of retrospective investigations of factors possibly associated with the occurrence of a disease are discussed and their relationship to forward-type studies emphasized.Expand
The analysis of cross-classified categorical data
The second edition has been updated and revised, with more emphasis on logic and logistic response properties and on the small-sample behavior of chi-square statistics. It includes 40 to 50 newExpand
