Network movies - Structural cohesion


Hey - Doug -- hope you are well? if not, get better soon...

One link to other data: https://dnac.ssri.duke.edu/datasets.php this has links to other collections of datasets...lost of different ones.

On the sociology data substantively, well have many updated bits soon too (end of summer, early next fall) so could do something with that....

Thanks Jim. And Doug, no apologies needed. You’re the one who drove this project and I appreciate the many hours that you spent in my office staring at graphs and explaining the basic concepts to me. I just hope that you’re feeling better soon.

I’m starting to rebut the reviewers’ comments. I also asked the editor for a couple more weeks to finish updating the manuscript since the next month will be very busy for me due to a mix of travel, conferences, hosting our annual summer institute for high performance computing and preparing to officiate my first wedding.

The place where I could immediately use some help is in collecting additional data sets. Reviewer #1 wrote “There are many social network data sets available (SNAP, KONECT, LAW data sets, for example)” Even though he is not expecting us to apply our algorithm to these, I think that it would be very easy to do and could add a lot of value to the paper.

Regarding data sets, would it be appropriate to ask Ferraro for access to the graphs he used in his Journal of Social Structure paper? Btw, I’m almost positive that he is reviewer #2.

On another note, we should consider is publishing a results paper on the k-components that we identified in the co-author data set. The sociologists (Jim, Doug, Tolga) should lead this, but I’m very happy to help.

Hi - Here are comments on the paper, I think this is great.

Structural cohesion

Moody and White 2003

News: Nov. 2001: In our sample of ~350 early adolescent networks. I created a stability score for a peer-group assignment clustering; then within each of those clusters calculated k-cohesion; and it's a very strong predictor of stability over time. The more cohesive the structure, the more stable the group. Net of just about anything you want to throw at the model... Fun!

p. 410: First, I describe the domain of individual membership attitudes and behaviors, on the basis of which some investigators have defined groups as more or less cohesive. Second, I describe the domain of group-level conditions, on the basis of which other investigators have defined groups as more or less cohesive. I develop the argument that these group-level conditions of cohesion are either derivative properties of the distribution of individual-level indicators of cohesion or causal antecedents of these indicators. Third, I point to recent work on mechanisms that reciprocally link the group-level conditions of cohesion and the individual-level indicators of cohesion.
