In this manuscript, we present a new inference method based on approximate Bayesian computation for estimating parameters governing an entire network based on link-traced samples of that network. To do this, we first take summary statistics from an observed link-traced network sample, such as a recruitment network of subjects in a hard-to-reach population… CONTINUE READING
