Description

This function computes the number of co-occurrences between industry pairs from an incidence (industry - event) matrix

Usage

1
co.occurrence(mat, diagonal = FALSE, list = FALSE)

Arguments

mat

An incidence matrix with industries in rows and events in columns

diagonal

Logical; shall the values in the diagonal of the co-occurrence matrix be included in the output? Defaults to FALSE (values in the diagonal are set to 0), but can be set to TRUE (values in the diagonal reflects in how many events a single industry can be found)

list

Logical; is the input a list? Defaults to FALSE (input = adjacency matrix), but can be set to TRUE if the input is an edge list

## generate a region - events matrix
set.seed(31)
mat <- matrix(sample(0:1,20,replace=T), ncol = 5)
rownames(mat) <- c ("I1", "I2", "I3", "I4")
colnames(mat) <- c("US1", "US2", "US3", "US4", "US5")

## run the function
co.occurrence (mat)
co.occurrence (mat, diagonal = TRUE)

## generate a regular data frame (list)
list <- get.list (mat)

## run the function
co.occurrence (list, list = TRUE)
co.occurrence (list, list = TRUE, diagonal = TRUE)
