DATASET: Primary school – cumulative networks
Release data: Aug 27, 2011
This dataset is part of our study of contact networks in a primary school, as reported in the paper High-Resolution Measurements of Face-to-Face Contact Patterns in a Primary School. The dataset comprises two weighted networks of face-to-face proximity between students and teachers. For each day of the study, a daily contact network is provided: nodes are individuals and edges represent face-to-face interactions. Nodes have two attributes: classname that indicates the school class and grade of the corresponding individual, and gender. Teachers are all assigned to the “Teachers” class. Edges between A and B have two weights associated with them: duration, which is the cumulative time spent by A and B in face-to-face proximity, over one day, measured in seconds (multiples of 20 seconds); and count, which is the number of times the A-B contact was established during the school day. The networks are provided as two GEXF files, one per day of the study, which can be loaded directly into Gephi. These GEXF files contain the same data provided in the supplementary information of the paper above.
