PURPOSE Calculate the density of a network or the average value in a matrix.
DESCRIPTION The density of a binary network is the total number of ties divided by the total number of possible ties. For a valued network it is the total of all values divided by the number of possible ties. The density of a network is simply the average value of the binary entries and so density and average value are the same. The routine will perform the analysis for non-square matrices.
Name of file containing dataset to be analyzed. Data type: Valued graph.
Name of data file which will contain density the default will be <input filename>-density.
Utilize diagonal (reflexive ties):
If this is unchecked then for square matrices the diagonal entries are ignored.
LOG FILE Density value and number of ties for each relation for binary data and the average value and standard deviation for valued data.
