DATA>EXPORT > PAJEK > QUANTITATIVE ATTRIBUTE
PURPOSE Convert UCINET quantitative attribute files into a Pajek file.
DESCRIPTION Converts UCINET quantitative attribute files into Pajek format ie Pajek vec files. The conversion can take a matrix of attributes and create a set of Pajek vec files one for each column of the matrix. These files can be used in Pajek to change the sizes of the nodes according to a particular attribute.
PARAMETERS (Input) Attribute dataset
Name of file containing quantitative actor attributes. These maybe attributes of the actors Eg age or possibly network attributes Eg centrality. If there is more than one attribute this can be combined into an attribute matrix with the rows representing the actors and each column corresponding to a different attribute.
Output file(s) prefix:
Name of Pajek attribute file to be created. If there is more than one attribute then one file will be created for each attribute with the same file name but with the column number added as the last character in the name. Pajek quantitative attribute files have the file extension .vec.
LOG FILE Lists the Pajek vec files created
