A stochastic model is proposed for social networks in which the actors in a network are partItIoned mto subgroups called blocks. The model provides a stochastrc generalization of the blockmodel. Estimation techniques are developed for the special case of a single relation social network, with blocks specified D prrorr. An extension of the model allows for tendencies toward reciprocation of ties beyond those explained by the partition. The extended model prowdes a one degree-of-freedom test of… CONTINUE READING
