When a network is partially observed (here, NAs in the adjacency matrix rather than 1 or 0 due to missing information between node pairs), it is possible to account for the underlying process that generates those NAs. ‘missSBM’, presented in ‘Barbillon, Chiquet and Tabouy’ (2021) https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.12201, adjusts the popular stochastic block model from network data observed under various missing data conditions, as described in ‘Tabouy, Barbillon and Chiquet’ (2019) 10.1080/01621459.2018.1562934.
