Hi Phillip, 

Borgatii et al (2013, Analyzing Social Networks. Sage) provide a brief discussion on pages 73-76 with some follow up references on page 76. Most of their discussion is about inferring the missing data from other responses in a survey, though the lit they review at the end (page 76) talks about more technical ways to deal with the missing data. They refer readers to: 

Butts 2003 Network inference, error, and information (in)accuracy: a Bayesian approach. Soc Networks 25(2):103-140

and

Candes and Recht 2012 Exact matrix completion via convex optimization. Communications of the ACM 55:111-119

But I would be really interested to see what literature people refer you to, so please share them if the reply off listserve. 

Best wishes, 
Jesse

Hi.  I’m looking for articles on how to handle missing data in network research.  How should network measures be modified?  What good ways are there of imputing values for the missing data?  Thanks in advance.
