Hello SocNet group,
I am fairly new to network-theory and its application but I am slowly
getting into it - great stuff.
However, a question has arised which probably is quite a newbie question,
but I haven't found an answer to it in my Wasserman/Faust. Excuse me for
bothering this mailing list with my simple questions.
If I have structural data which is directed and valued - what different
options and methods are available for calculating different types of
centrality/prestige? What if I have non-directional data?
My very small sample consists of 4 people talking to eachother on the phone
where the data in the matrix contains the number of phone conversations had,
ie a non-directional data set - csv-file as follows:
I also have a similar data set where the values instead measure who called
who, ie a directional data set.
Regarding centrality/prestige/ranking measures - are there special
conditions or recommendations on max/min number of samples for accurate
Thank you in advance,
