Abstract This paper investigates a variant of the preferential attachment model when several nodes are born each period and nodes are heterogeneous. We study the resulting degree distri-butions and establish parameter-dependent properties such as first-order stochastic dom-inance. From the case of two types, which we first study, we then generalise to n types. This comes without any complications. Finally, an elementary microfoundation of this hitherto ad-hoc postulated dynamic process of random network formation is suggested. ”Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one. ” (Jane Howard) 1
