Modeling Peer Influence and Homophily as Processes

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Behavioral scientists are aware of the strong and persistent correlation between peer and individual behavior. Evidence suggests selection and socialization effects explain the correlation, but the empirical ways in which these processes operate remain relatively unexamined. This paper discusses two reasons for limited investigation: a theoretical debate concerning homophily or socialization, and the methodological difficulties of modeling processes. This paper then uses waves 3-5 of the National Youth Survey to make process-type hypotheses empirically explicit.
