  • We extend recent work by van der Laan (2014) on causal inference for causally connected units to more general social network settings. Our asymptotic results allow for dependence of each observation on a growing number of other units as sample size increases. We are not aware of any previous methods for inference about network members in observational settings that allow the number of ties per node to increase as the network grows. While previous methods have generally implicitly focused on one… CONTINUE READING
