Bayesian Analysis of Cognitive Social Structures with Covariates
Johan Koskinen


When studying perception of interaction in the framework of Cognitive Social Structures (Krackhardt 1987) one is often interested in correlating bias on the part of the perceivers with exogenous attributes of the perceivers (e.g. Bondonio 1998; Casciaro 1998; Casciaro, Carley and Krackhardt, 1999). In this study we propose a Bayesian probit model for explaining biases in perception in terms of known covariates.
