***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I have computed the geodesic distances for all possible dyadic combinations of actors in a network. The network is not completely connected and thus for some dyads, there is no path between them. Theoretically, the geodesic distance between two such actors is infinity. One approach would be to drop dyadic observations with an infinite path length from my analysis and treat them as missing data. However, I am looking for suggestions about assigning an actual value for distance (or a transformation thereof) for such dyads so they do not fall out of my analysis. I would appreciate any and all help from the list. Thanks. Corey Corey Phelps, PhD Asst.
