undergraduate level coursework
The UCINET data SAMPSON contains numerous rankings of a novice group of monks collected by Sampson. Extract the data SAMPLK1 and SAMPLK3. The non-symmetric valued data
is coded so that 3 represents the top or first choice, 2 the second choice and 1 the third choice. They were only asked to give their top 3 choices but ties and no
responses were allowed. Sampson identified four groups:
Winifred, John, Gregory, Hugh, Boniface, Mark and Albert (The Young Turks)
Bonaventure, Ambrose, Berthold, Peter and Louis (The Loyal Opposition)
Basil, Elias and Simplicius (The Outcasts)
Romuland, Victor and Amand (The floaters).
i) Produce a visualization of SAMPLK3 which incorporates the groups described above in your visualization.
ii) Find the most central actors in the network. How would you describe their roles with respect to the above groups? Incorporate one of your centrality results
into your visualization.
iii) By analysing the network do you think Sampson was correct in his group identification? Is the structure consistent with the term outcasts and floaters?
iv) Examine SAMPLK1, how have things changed over time? Produce a visualization that captures the changes.
v) Soon after the data SAMPLK3 was collected Gregory, Basil, Elias and Simplicius were expelled. Almost immediately John departed followed by Hugh, Boniface,
Mark, Albert, Victor, Amand and Romuland (roughly in order). What, if anything, in the network structure helps us understand what happened. What further information
