***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Colleagues, A STATA command - centpow - is now available to compute a handful of node centrality and power indices. From a symmetric (binary or valued) matrix, the command computes degree centrality, recursive centrality and power, and beta centrality and power. It can be installed by typing "ssc install centpow" in the STATA command window. Recursive centrality and power are conceptually (and often empirically) similar to Beta centrality and power, but are computationally distinct; they do not rely on eigenvalues and do not require selecting a 'beta' parameter. These measures are discussed in two forthcoming papers, currently available at http://www.msu.edu/~zpneal/publications.html: Neal, Z. P. (in press) Differentiating Centrality and Power in the World City Network, Urban Studies. Neal, J. W. and Z. P. Neal. (in press) Power as a Structural Phenomenon, American Journal of Community Psychology.
