Network descriptives in R

Some weeks ago I gave a short talk in a MANA session on generating basic descriptive statistics on (social) networks using R. I showed how to transform various kinds of data structures (bipartite networks, edgelists, adjacency matrices) to a format that can easily be handled in R and in iGraph for R. Then I showed how to use the iGraph library to calculate different types of network centrality, density and visualize networks.

Download the dummy data sets and R code:
