incubs: Business Network Incubators Data Sets

Description Usage Format Source

Description

These are four data sets collected in year 2010 (see ‘source’ for the details) of multiple relations between entrepreneurial firms working in business incubators in Denmark.

Each data set contains the adjacency matrices of the three social relations, coded as C, F, and K for working collaboration, informal friendship, and perceived competition among the firms. There are also two actor attributes corresponding to the adoption of a Web innovations at that time by the firms where A stands for Linkedin and B for Facebook.

In addition, there is a blockmodel attached to each data set that is product of Compositional Equivalence (cf. cph) with transposes for each type of social tie labelled with the following letter in the Latin alphabet; i.e. D for collaboration, etc.

Format

Each data set is a list with a pair of three dimensioanl arrays.

For incubA, the dimensions of net are 26 \times 26 \times 5, and of IM are 4 \times 4 \times 7 (the two attributes led to the identity matrix).

For incubB, the dimensions of net are 18 \times 18 \times 5, and of IM are 4 \times 4 \times 8.

For incubC, the dimensions of net are 22 \times 22 \times 5, and of IM are 3 \times 3 \times 8.

For incubD, the dimensions of net are 15 \times 15 \times 5, and of IM are 4 \times 4 \times 6.

All four networks are putted in together in incubs.

In order to plot automatically actor attributes in the graph with function multigraph, another version of these data sets are given in incA, incB, incC, and incD, which are "Data.Set" objects class having:

net for the network data

atnet a vector that indicates whether or not the arrays in 'net' is attribute data

IM for the Image Matrices of the reduced network data

atIM a vector that indicates whether or not the array in 'IM' is attribute data
