Clustering coefficient

I read the article that is cited in Node Xl about Clustering coefficient and I got this doubt: Node Xl uses the Global clustering coefficient or the Local clustering coefficient?

Hello!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Clustering coefficient is a metric that is local to each vertex. It is the measure of the number of alters that connect to other alters.

Therefore, there is no "Global Clustering Coefficient" - perhaps this is captured in the Graph Density metric?
