Dear Socnet colleagues,
I have a query about multiplex ERGM’s and I wonder if anyone can help me?
I have two networks, one is a directed network of friendship ties where everyone in the network can send links. The second network is also a directed network, however only certain members of the network can send links. This second network is of individuals who nominate colleagues to provide them with feedback, however it is only individuals of a particular job role that can send these ties to nominate the colleagues.
When using an ERGM, does it matter methodologically if ties can not be sent by all actors in the network? If it does, is there any way of accounting for the inability of all actors not being able to send ties.
Thank you in advance!
