Simplifying ego-centered network analysis in R with egor
Presenter: Till Krenz, University of Florida
The workshop focuses on the analysis of ego-centered networks in R with the R-package egor. egor provides a tidyverse (https://www.tidyverse.org/) integrated workflow for importing ego centered network data into R, conducting analysis and creating visualizations. With the ego-sociogram it provides a visualization technique tailored for ego-centered network data; a graphical visualization interface and a clearly structured data organization enables a more intuitive route to completing your egor centered network analysis.
The first part of the workshop will be a video. It will introduce SNA measures at the alter level (e.g. multiplexity, EI-Index (network subgroups) and the ego/network level (size, density, constraint, EI-Index (ego), diversity, proportions of ties with specific attributes). The video will instruct the participants to execute tasks in R, technical support via e-mail and video calls will be available.
The second part will be a live-session on zoom, where we we continue with multivariate analyses, both on the ego/network level and the alter level (Multi-Level Regression, Cluster-Analysis, Clustered Graphs) and individual questions of the participants.
The workshop provides practical examples and exercises. A short intro into the basics of R is provided – previous knowledge of R and the tidyverse is not essential. For a more in-depth introduction to R it is recommended to visit either the workshop "Introduction to ego-network analysis with R” by Raffaele Vacca or Michal Bojanowski's "Introduction to R and Social Network Analysis with igraph" for a general introduction to sociocentric network analysis in R.
Recorded video to watch prior to the live session will be available June 15.
Live session will be June 22.
