Project Youthbuild’s Students Friendship Network
Visualizing a friendship network among Project Youthbuild’s students. This visualization helps PYB’s staff find patterns among the students and use these connections for more significant impacts or prevent a problem. Also, this pattern helps them with future enrollments.
To visualize this friendship among PYB students, I collected data about their gender, race, and close friends by designing a questionnaire. I used Gephi to manage the data and connect the nodes (students) based on their friendship (edges). I continued to use Gephi for the next steps. I visualized the gender dataset and race dataset separately. Later, I combined them. I also used the statistics tab to find some statistics such as the average degree of the nodes, diameter of the network, average path length, and density.
