Table 1 Properties of empirical datasets.Properties of empirical datasets.. List of real-world social networks used in this study, their main properties, and estimated model parameters. *N* is the number of nodes in the network, 〈*k*〉 is the average degree, *n*_{a} is the fraction of nodes in the smaller attribute group, HI_{a} = (*T*_{aa} − *n*_{a})/(1 − *n*_{a}) and HI_{b} = (*T*_{bb}**−***n*_{b})/(1 − *n*_{b}) are the Coleman homophily indices (*60*) of the groups, *s*_{a}(0) and *s*_{b}(0) are the estimates of the bias parameters when *c* = 0 [equal to observed homophily, *s*_{a}(0) = *o*_{a} and *s*_{b}(0) = *o*_{b}], and *s*_{a}(1) and *s*_{b}(1) are the estimates when *c* = 1. 〈saABC〉 and 〈sbABC〉 are the mean ABC estimates for *s*_{a} and *s*_{b}.
