Homophily, the tendency of individuals to be friends with others that are similar in some respect, is one of the most pervasive regularities in social networks. It is closely linked to segregation, as it indicates to what extent individuals of different groups are in contact with one another. This paper explores network configurations that amplify or diminish tendencies of homophily, and analyses at what stages in the evolution of friendships homophily is strongest. To this end, complete, longitudinal networks of school cohorts are analysed using Stochastic Actor-Oriented Models.
