Description

Randomization Test of DC and Skew-Symmetry of a Sociomatrix.

Usage

1
dc_test(m, N = 20, ntimes = 10000)

Arguments

m

A matrix with individuals ordered identically in rows and columns.

N

The number of behaviors for each dyad

ntimes

Number of simulations

Value

A list containing p-value of each test, observed values and descriptive measures of randomized data.

Further details

This is a one-sided significance test i.e. that observed values are higher than expected
