Ranking Number of Neighbours

Post by Tatteo » 08 Nov 2017 14:45

Hello,

Apologies if this question has already been asked. I have looked around, but cannot find any other instances.

I am having issues analysing a dataset. In the dataset I have some instances of multiple edges connecting the same two nodes. My problem, multiplied by a few thousand rows, is that I have something like:

A - B
B - A
A - C
C - B

What I would like to calculate is the number of neighbours that each node has.

I thought I could just calculate their degree, but this is influenced by the fact that some nodes are linked twice. So A's degree would be ranked 3 when it actually has 2 neighbours.

So my question is: is there a way to
a) rank nodes by number of neighbours instead of by degree
OR
b) merge duplicate edges with nodes in opposite order.

Thanks a lot!

Yeah, when you import the file, during import report you can choose the edges merge strategy
