NETWORK>EGO NETWORKS>HONEST BROKER>HONEST BROKER INDEX
PURPOSE Calculate the honest broker and normalise honest broker indices.
DESCRIPTION In a directed network in which each ego network is defined by incoming or reciprocated ties of trust like relations there are three brokerage scores. HBI0 is when the alters are not connected, HBI1 is if there is a directed tie between the alters and HBI2 is if there is a reciprocated tie. This routine gives a raw count and normlized score for each type.
(Input) Network dataset
Name of file to be analysed. Data type: Digraph
(Output) Node level statistics
Name of UCINET datafile containing honest broker scores. Default = <filename>-HBI
Ego must send tie to alters as well as receive
If this box is checked then ego networks are defined by reciprocated ties otherwise the ego network consists of in-coming ties only.
LOG FILE Table containing ego network size number of pairs of alters and honest broker scores and normalized scores for each ego.
