Regression Methods for Network Indexed Data: Modeling Occurrences of Burglary and Identifying Correlates of Injection Drug Use Cessation by Prof. Elizabeth Upton, Williams College, Wednesday, September 25, 1:10 – 1:50 pm, Stetson Court Classroom 105, Statistics Colloquium

Abstract:  We begin by defining and providing examples of network-indexed data. We then turn to two applications: modeling occurrences of residential burglary in Boston, MA and identifying network predictors of injection drug use cessation among a group of drug users in rural Kentucky. We discuss the graph Laplacian, a hierarchical regression model, and generalized estimating equations along the way.
