Dear all & Robert,

The question about homophily for attributes over which the actors have
control is central to the paper
Steglich, C.E.G., Snijders, T.A.B. and Pearson, M.  Dynamic Networks and
Behavior: Separating Selection from Influence.
To be published, Sociological Methodology, 2010.
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~snijders/siena/SteglichSnijdersPearson2009.pdf

Two very small data sets that satisfy your requirements are the Knecht
and the s50 data sets at
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~snijders/siena/siena_datasets.htm

Best wishes,
Tom
