In Pajek you can do this at least partially using Pajek's repetitive options - see page 71 in the manual http://vlado.fmf.uni-lj.si/pub/networks/pajek/doc/pajekman.pdf For ego-nets you can store them into single network either each ego-net as a new relation (in multi-relational network) or, if you have different relations inside ego-nets, you can determine each ego-net by a partition. Then you can extract all ego-nets into a sequence of ego-nets. You can apply selected procedures on each ego-net from this sequnce using repetitive options. The computed characteristics of ego-nets are stored in vectors that can be exported to R or SPSS and used in statistical analyses there.
