***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi Tom This looks like a great idea. (Though I found the web page a bit bare in terms of navigation guidance) I (almost) have a 13 year time series of data on NGO involvement in different sectors and provinces in Vietnam (2 two-mode networks - NGOs x sectors, NGOs x provinces). I was thinking of putting these into the public domain, for anyone to analyse. Would this type of data set be of use on your website? regards, rick davies www.mande.co.uk On 6/10/06, Tom Valente <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > > Friends: > This email introduces the empirical networks project- an effort to make > empirical social network data available to the research community. > Below is a web link to a site where you can download a dataset of 720 > networks.
