This fileset contains half-yearly flow-of-funds data for the branch network of the Yokohama Specie Bank between 1893 and 1908. Data has been organized into matrices.
This set shows net 'amounts transferred'; totals are in Japanese yen. The matrices document the process for arriving at net transferred amounts, concretely by: 1) transposing matrices, 2) deducting the transposed matrix from the original one, and deleting negative values by means of logical expressions (the IF function). The end result, in the fourth quadrant of the spreadsheet, contains the values that were fed into the SNA-software packages.

These matrices have formed the basis for visualizations in social network analysis (SNA) software packages, as, for instance, UCINet, Pajek, Gephi, and the igraph-package in R.
