number of nodes in connected components

Nov 22, 2016 at 8:51 AM
Dear all,
although NodeXL give the total number of connected components (cc), is there a way to obtain the number of nodes in each connected component? This with the aim of constructing an histogram of "nodes per cc" vs. "p(nodes per cc)".
Thank you very much (and sorry if this thread has been already posted: I have not been able to find it ;()

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Yes, you can count the number of vertices per connected component.

First, group your network by connected component.

Select Group by Connected Component from the NodeXL>Analysis>Groups menu:


Once groups are calculated, the network metrics for each group can be found on the GROUPS worksheet that is created by NodeXL when this operation is run.
