Факторы формирования дружеских связей студентов

Прикладная эконометрика. 2015. Т. 40. № 4. С. 49-63.

We consider the structure of social network of university students, and analyze factors that lead to the personal communication (friendship) network formation. Using the data from student survey and administrative information, we estimate the econometric models that assume homophily and propinquity effects on the likelihood of being friends. Specifically, we estimate linear and logistic probability models with and without fixed effects. The results confirm the significance of such friendship formation factors as sharing the same study group, living in dormitory, similar academic achievement and having the same gender. The probability of a tie increases with the number of similar attributes.
