Table 1 Properties of 17 networks used in simulations: Summary

From: Effectiveness variation in simulated school-based network interventions

Network property Mean SD Range
Nodes 23.7 3.9 17 to 331
Edges 97 26 58 to 157
Components 1.2 0.5 1 to 3
Communities 2.9 0.7 2 to 4
Density 0.37 0.09 0.2 to 0.5
Degree: Mean 8.1 1.6 5.0 to 10.7
Degree: Gini 0.19 0.05 0.10 to 0.28
Degree: Assortativity 0.18 0.23 -0.15 to 0.71
Clustering Coefficient: Mean local 0.70 0.09 0.52 to 0.91
Mean shortest path2 1.8 0.3 1.4 to 2.7
Diameter2 4.1 1.2 2 to 6
  1. 1While at least 20 contributing students were required for the school to be included, removal of isolates can reduce the corresponding network to fewer than 20 nodes
  2. 2Calculation of the mean shortest path excluded two networks that were not connected
