Network Structure of Japanese Firms Hierarchy and Degree Correlation: Analysis from 800,000 Firms

Author

  • Konno, Tomohiko

Abstract

We found hierarchical structure and negative degree correlation in firms' transaction network. The network consists of 800,000 Japanese firms. We also summarize other features of the network and discuss why studying network structure is important. We also found scale free distribution in undirected network.
