Abstract

Demonstrates how a class of modeling techniques, commonly referred to as latent structure analysis, can be used in an informative way to study the character of sequential categorical data. Using this procedure, the authors show how to investigate (a) the lagged dependence between 2 actors, (b) dependency across populations, and (c) the issue of dominance and autodependence in reciprocal models of interaction sequences. Formal test statistics are utilized to select from an array of restricted and unrestricted latent class models fit to various sets of dyadic interaction data.
