Abstract

As empirical work in identifying social effects becomes more prevalent, researchers are beginning to struggle in identifying the composition of social interactions within any given reference group. In this article, we present a simple econometric methodology for the separate identification of multiple social interactions. The setting under which we achieve separation is special but is likely to be appropriate in many applications. (JEL Z13)
