I am wondering if I can compare centrality measures across networks. For example, node
A from network 1 has a centrality score of 3 and node B from network 2 has a centrality
score of 1, (and the two networks are not related and different in size). Can I still
conclude that A is more central in network 1 than B is in network 2? Or does this depend
on what kinds of centrality we are talking about?
Also, if this conclusion is misleading, is there a normalized centrality score that can be
compared across networks? I am hoping someone on this list can help.
