This report examines the tendency of Inviters and Invitees to be disproportionately similar with respect to their demographic, political orientation and attitudinal characteristics, i.e. Examines the homophily hypothesis in VAA generated data. We find that Inviters were not more similar to their respective Invitees with regards to demographic and political identity attributes, beyond what would be expected by chance, on the contrary we find that the pairs held consistency more similar attitudes toward the policy items in a statistically significant manner.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9662||ISBN:||978-147996813-8||Rights:||© 2014 IEEE.||Type:||Conference Papers|
