BERNARD & KILLWORTH TECHNICAL
DESCRIPTION Two 34x34 matrices.
BKTECB symmetric, valued
BKTECC non-symmetric, valued (rankings).
BACKGROUND Bernard & Killworth, later with the help of Sailer, collected five sets of data on human interactions in bounded groups and on the actors' ability to recall those interactions. In each study they obtained measures of social interaction among all actors, and ranking data based on the subjects' memory of those interactions. The names of all cognitive (recall) matrices end in C, those of the behavioral measures in B.
These data concern interactions in a technical research group at a West Virginia university. BKTECB contains a frequency record of interactions, made by an observer every half-hour during one five-day work week. BKTECC contains the personal rankings of the remembered frequency of interactions in the same period. The rankings go from 1 for the most frequent up to 36 for the least frequent.
