The name of an Ucinet dataset .To partition the rows of the data matrix into blocks, specify a blocking vector by giving the dataset name, a dimension and an integer value. For example, to use the second column of a dataset called ATTRIB, enter "ATTRIB COL 2". The program will then read the second column of ATTRIB and use that information to sort the rows of the matrix. All rows with identical values on the criterion vector (i.e. the second col of attrib) will be placed in the same block of the matrix.

For square matrices NO means that diagonal entries are ignored.

Name of file containing reciprocity values for each actor in the network

If a partition is given the output gives the groups followed by a blocked reciprocity matrix within and between groups using the measure selected. Note this matrix must be symmetric for the dyad based method.

Reciprocity proportions are then given for each actor by considering the ties to and from each as taken as ego. (Note these are the same at actor level regardless of the method selected and are based on dyads) These are given in columns as follows.

Symmetric: The total number of reciprocated ties involving ego divided by the number of ties to and from ego.

Non-symmetric. One minus the symmetric score.

Out/NonSym. The number of non-symmetric out-going ties divided by the total number of non-symmetric ties.

In/NonSym. The number of non-symmetric in-coming ties divided by the total number of non-symmetric ties.

NonSym/Out. The number of non-symmetric out-going ties divided by the total number of out-going ties.

NonSym/In. The number of non-symmetric in-coming ties divided by the total number of in-coming ties.
