networkx.algorithms.triads.triadic_census

triadic_census(G)[source]

Determines the triadic census of a directed graph.

The triadic census is a count of how many of the 16 possible types of triads are present in a directed graph.

Parameters

G (digraph) – A NetworkX DiGraph

Returns

census – Dictionary with triad names as keys and number of occurrences as values.

Return type

dict

Notes

This algorithm has complexity \(O(m)\) where \(m\) is the number of edges in the graph.
