The goal of the networkreporting package is to help people use network reporting methods.

In traditional survey methods, respondents report about themselves. In network report methods, survey respondents report about the people to whom they are socially connected. Thus, network reporting methods can be thought of a generalization of traditional surveys. Many existing methods rely on this kind of indirect reporting and are thus network reporting methods:

Although many of the methods that rely on indirect reporting have been regarded as distinct in the past, there is great value in developing a unified statistical framework to deal with common problems that all of these methods share. This unified framework also enables us to develop new network reporting methods. This package will help you use both existing network reporting methods and any new network reporting methods that you develop.

The development of this software was supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (R01-HD075666).
