- MODELING SOCIAL NETWORKS FROM SAMPLED DATAMark S Handcock
Department of Statistics, University of California, Los Angeles, California 90095 1554, USA
Ann Appl Stat 4:5-25. 2010..We then develop inference for social network models based on information from adaptive network designs. We motivate and illustrate these ideas by analyzing the effect of link-tracing sampling designs on a collaboration network...
- Likelihood-based inference for stochastic models of sexual network formationMark S Handcock
Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences, University of Washington, Box 354320, Seattle, WA 98195 4320, USA
Theor Popul Biol 65:413-22. 2004..We discuss the limitations of inferences from such data, and the utility of degree-based epidemiological models more generally...
- Interval estimates for epidemic thresholds in two-sex network modelsMark S Handcock
Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195 4320, USA
Theor Popul Biol 70:125-34. 2006..For the USA, the interval includes zero. We discuss the implications of these findings along with the limitations of epidemic models which assume random mixing...
- Degree distributions in sexual networks: a framework for evaluating evidenceDeven T Hamilton
Department of Sociology, University of Washington, Seatle, Washington 98195, USA
Sex Transm Dis 35:30-40. 2008..We present a likelihood based statistical framework to test the fit of power-law and alternative social process models for the degree distribution, and derive the sexually transmitted infection epidemic predictions from each model...

J Immunoassay Immunochem 25:259-78. 2004..3%+/-5.3% after correction. A statistical method based on linear mixed effects modeling is an expedient approach for correction of non-parallelism, particularly for hormone data that will be analyzed in aggregate...
- A curved exponential family model for complex networksMark S Handcock
Department of Statistics, University of Washington, Seattle, USA
Comput Math Organ Theory 15:294-302. 2009..We present two tunable parameterizations of the model and give their interpretation. We also present a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm that can be used to generate networks from this model...
- Estimating the size of populations at high risk for HIV using respondent-driven sampling dataMark S Handcock
Department of Statistics, University of California, Los Angeles, California, U S A
Biometrics 71:258-66. 2015..Our method is widely applicable to data from RDS studies and we provide a software package to facilitate this. ..

J R Stat Soc Ser A Stat Soc 178:619-639. 2015..We demonstrate improved performance compared to existing estimators, including adjustment for an initial convenience sample. We also apply the method and an extension to the estimation of HIV prevalence in a high-risk population...

Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27516, USA
Sex Transm Dis 32:593-8. 2005..The prevalence of trichomoniasis in the general population of the United States is unknown. This study provides the first population-based prevalence estimates of trichomoniasis among young adults in the United States...
