Online Appendix

Here we present raw output from the ERGM models presented in Chapter 7 (around page 198), Table 7.5. We include the raw output with embedded comments for the reader who is interested in findings key technical details about the sample statistics and diagnosing degeneracy. We also include a series of graphics for the MCMC diagnostics and goodness-of-fit for the ERGMs generated for the 109th and 110th Congresses.

We note there are statistical, but not substantive, differences between these results and those found in Table 7.5. The results published in the book were produced in March 2012, but at that time we failed to save all the appropriate statistics. We re-estimated the models in August of 2013 and saved all the graphics. The estimates and graphics from the August 2013 run are reported here. Questions or comments about these estimations, the high performance computers used to estimate them, or other comments can be direct to Jennifer Victor.
