Hello Rick,

The measure of "network diversity" really depends on how you define diversity. I have used Blau's heterogeneity index to examine the extent to which ties are developed among nodes from different categories (gender, ethnicity, education, etc) in the same network.

Within UCINET, you can try a measure called Egonet Composition under Ego Networks.

Hi all

Please excuse me if this a SNA 101 question...

Is there one or more measures of "network diversity"
i.e. the extent to which actors in a given network each have different structural position within that network (i.e. a different set of links to all others)

Are any of these measures available within UCINET?

with thanks, rick davies
