Some Longitudinal Network Data Sources
The following is a list of existing sources of dynamic network data we are aware of that are suitable for longitudinal network analysis or visualization with SoNIA and other programs. Some of these sources are publicly available, many are not. Please contact us with additional citations or links.
“Fully dynamic” (continuous time) data
- Streaming data of interactions in classrooms - Dan McFarland
- Marriage and economic networks in Renissance Florence- John Padgett

ENRON email dataset "...It contains data from about 150 users, mostly senior management of Enron, organized into folders. The corpus contains a total of about 0.5M messages. This data was originally made public, and posted to the web, by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission during its investigation."... MIT Reality Mining - Realtime proximity and conversation data on cellphone users "...We have captured communication, proximity, location, and activity information from 100 subjects at MIT over the course of the 2004-2005 academic year. This data represents over 350,000 hours (~40 years) of continuous data on human behavior. "... UCI KDD data archive
“Partially dynamic” (multiple wave) data
- Newcomb's Fraternity Friendships - Data is distributed with UCINET. Newcomb, Theodore M. 1961. The Acquaintance Process. New York: Holt, Rinehart, Winston.
- The Adolescent Health Survey - The National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health, known as "AddHealth" for short. AddHealth is unique survey of adolescents and their social environment. The survey contacted nearly 90,000 adolescents for an in-school interview, which gives us the first images of total school friendship patterns since James Coleman's The Adolescent Society. Those interested in the AddHealth project should see their web page, at http://www.cpc.unc.edu/addhealth/
- The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) releases varius data related to international trade and economics, accessible from their main statistics page. http://www.oecd.org/statsportal/0,2639,en_2825_293564_1_1_1_1_1,00.html
- The Center for International Data at UC Davis has compiled and cleaned a large longitudinal (1962 - 2000) DB of world trade value and volumes by industry classification for all countries. The data can be downloaded for free for research use only. http://cid.econ.ucdavis.edu/data/undata/undata.html
