Network science spans many different fields of study, ranging from psychology to biology to the social sciences. A number of descriptive network measures have been identified for use within these fields; however, little research examines the relationships of these measures for possible statistical dependence. The research presented in this paper uses Spearman's rank correlation coefficient to examine the statistical dependence between pairs of 24 widely accepted social network measures… CONTINUE READING
