Social Networks and Health Workshop
May 11-15, 2020
The Duke Network Analysis Center (DNAC) and the Duke Population Research Institute, with support from the NICHD, will be hosting the fifth week-long Social Networks and Health workshop from May 11 – 15, 2020. It introduces attendees to topics in social networks, and how they can be applied to research on health.
The Social Networks and Health workshop will cover topics in social network analysis related to studying health behaviors, including:
- Data collection
- Ego network analysis
- Diffusion and peer influence
- Communities in networks
- Respondent-driven sampling
- Network visualizations
- Statistical Models for networks (ERGM, SAOM)
The workshop will also contain a substantial lab component, which will give attendees an opportunity to learn how to use the R statistical computing language to analyze networks. Last year’s presentations and labs are available in the right column.
