Table 4 Summary of homophily overall and by field

From: Investigating how faculty social networks and peer influence relate to knowledge and use of evidence-based teaching practices

Data set Rank Tenure status Gender
Overall τ = 0.082, p < 0.001 τ = 0.096, p < 0.001 τ = 0.067
Biology τ = 0.006, ns τ = 0.019, ns τ = 0.000
Chemistry τ = 0.083, p < 0.01 τ = 0.114, p < 0.01 τ = 0.143
  1. Summary of full results available in Additional file 1: Tables S1–S3. τ is the inbreeding coefficient defined in the main text
  2. In our study, for the gender dimension, the estimation of the homophily coefficient uses up 1 degree of freedom for the 2 × 2 table, and so a test for difference from 0 of the coefficient cannot be conducted
