multinets is an R package that provides tools to visualize and analyze Multilevel Network Data. It was built as an extension to the
multinets package is on CRAN. It is developed under control version using Git and is hosted in GitHub. You can download it from CRAN using:
You can download the development version from GitHub using
# install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("neylsoncrepalde/multinets")
As a basic example, we will plot a multilevel network. We are going to use
linked_sim, a simulated multilevel network dataset.
