Misc Links: Stata Networks and Mac SPSS bugfix
| Gabriel |
Two quick links that might be of interest.
- As probably became inevitable with the creation of Mata, progress marches on in bringing social networks to Stata. Specifically, SSC is now hosting “centpow.ado,” which calculates Bonacich centrality and a few related measures directly in Stata. Thanks to Zach Neal of Michigan State for contributing this command. A few more years of this kind of progress and I can do everything entirely within Stata rather than exporting my network data, using “shell” to send the work out to R/igraph, and merging back in.
- Last week’s Java update for OS X broke some functionality in SPSS (or PASW, or IBM SPSS, or whatever they’re calling it now). If this is a problem for you, here’s some helpful advice on how to fix it. Or you could take my less helpful advice: switch to Stata.
