We consider identification of peer effects under peer group miss-specification. Our model of group miss-specification allows for missing data and peer group uncertainty. Missing data can take the form of some individuals being entirely absent from the data, and the researcher need not have any information on these individuals and may not even know that they are missing. We show that peer effects are nevertheless identifiable under mild restrictions on the probabilities of observing individuals… Expand

Using Aggregated Relational Data to Feasibly Identify Network Structure Without Network Data
The method uses ARD to recover the parameters of a general network formation model, which in turn permits the estimation of any arbitrary node- or graph-level statistic, and works well in simulations and in matching a range of network characteristics in real-world graphs from 75 Indian villages.

The Perils of Peer Effects
Individual outcomes are highly correlated with group average outcomes, a fact often interpreted as a causal peer effect. Without covariates, however, outcome-on-outcome peer effects are vacuous,Expand
Identification of Peer Effects through Social Networks
It is shown that endogenous and exogenous effects are generally identified under network interaction, although identification may fail for some particular structures. Expand
