At the moment there is no implementation of structural holes measure
as defined by Burt in the official release of NetworkX (1.6). However
there are two proposals in the development site with code for
computing this measure:
Neither is well tested, and both are quite old and seem kind of
abandoned. So use at your own risk. If you decide to use any of them,
please consider posting a comment to the NetworkX dev site with

Is anyonefamiliar if there is an implementation of burts structural holes measuresin networkX?I've checked the discussion group:https://groups.google.com/group/networkx-discuss/and the docs: http://networkx.lanl.gov/reference/algorithms.htmlbut couldn't find anything. I know that UCINet has measures for those asshown here: http://faculty.ucr.edu/~hanneman/nettext/C9_Ego_networks.htm2. On a more general note: Is there any document discussing the networkoriented measure of social capital (brokerage or bonding) given a networkand its structure?The best I could find is this very interesting documenthttp://www.horizons.gc.ca/doclib/Measurement_E.pdf with thetitle:"Measurement of Social Capital Reference Documentfor Public Policy Research, Development, and Evaluation"Best RegardsThomas PlotkowiakResearch AssistantMCM InstituteSt. Gallen_____________________________________________________________________SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for socialnetwork researchers (http://www.insna.org).
