Yes we reported the apparent robustness of certain centrality measures under conditions of missing data in:
Costenbader, E., & Valente T.W. (2003). The stability of centrality measures when networks are sampled. Social Networks, 25, 283-307.
And in-degree centrality is quite robust to missing data.

Dear SOCNET members,
I have two questions about the missing network data.
what can be done if we cannot get an ideal response rate (say less than 70 percent, or even lower)?
Thank you very much.
