Table 2 Network measures

From: Towards a network theory of regulatory burden

Network measure Definition
Total degree centrality The sum of a node’s out-degree centrality (row sum) and in-degree centrality (column sum)
Ego betweenness centrality The betweenness score of a node within its own ego network (includes the node itself, its immediate neighbors, and all links between them)
Eigenvector centrality Calculates the central eigenvector of the adjacency matrix; a node is central to the extent that its neighbors are central
Effective network size The effective size of a node’s ego network based on redundancy of ties
Triad count The number of distinct triads associated with a node
Clique count The number of distinct clique associated with a node
