Network-Level Measures

Network-Level Measures

(p.128) 8 Network-Level Measures
Social Networks and Health

Thomas W. Valente

Oxford University Press

Network level measures are measures calculated on the whole network and provide indicators of network structure. Eight network indicators are reviewed: size, density, reciprocity/mutuality, triadic census/transitivity, average path length, clustering, centralization, and core-periphery. The chapter then reviews two-mode data and closes with a discussion of network level influences on behavior. For example, how does density affect innovation diffusion?

Keywords:   network level, density, network cohesion, network indicators
