***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** Hi, I would be very grateful if you could give me some assistance with regard to three issues I'm grappling with in Ucinet 1. Is the "annealing" procedure that is available in Krackplot available in Pajek or Netdraw (now implemented in UCINET)? 2. I realized that similarity measures measured by Tools-->Similarities is different from that produced by Roles&Positions-->Structural-->Profile routine for structural equivalence, if using the same binary data as input. What is the difference between these two dissimilarities? Here is what I'm doing: I have done some blockmodeling, and I'm interested in repeating the same analysis using MDS, a procedure which requires a matrix of proximities as input. I was planning to use the same similarity matrix 9which produced the hierarchical clustering ) for the MDS, so I can compare the results. 3. I'm interested in finding the relationship between a HIV-risk comunication network and gender of network members, at an individual level of analysis and thought I could use the Vector-Anova procedure. Thus, is the output produced by the Tools-Statistics-Vector-Anova based on the total number of actors in the network, or the number of ties? Thanks in advance for your assistance - Emmanuel. ========================================================================== Emmanuel Koku Research Consultant - Sexual Health Toronto Public Health, Policy and Planning 175 Memorial Park Avenue Toronto, Ontario.
