I'd like to pose a question about structural holes. In my thesis I am
scrutinizing the relationship between constraints, centralization and mutual
equality of actors within the networks. Let us assume that within Network A,
constraint degrees for actors with high centrality are higher than those for
actors with high centrality within Network B. Is it correct to say that
Network A has higher degree of mutual equality? In other words: the higher
constraint degrees the actors possess, the less structural holes take place.
Can I say this? I would be most grateful for your expert comments and/or
confirmation. An additional question: can you tell, if there is a definition
for 'low constraint degree'. E.g., is value 0.3 'low'? I haven't seen any
scaling for these values. Please comment.
With kind regards,
