Dear Abigail,

In my paper
Tom A.B. Snijders. (2011). Statistical Models for Social Networks . 
Annual Review of Sociology, 37, 129-151.
http://dx.doi.org/10.1146/annurev.soc.012809.102709,
this issue is elaborated, and I discuss the conceptual basis of using 
probability-based methods for this type of N=1 studies.

Best wishes,
Tom
