A data frame containing an hypothetical (randomly generated) focal observations' data set to be passed to dtable(). This example contains 100 focal samples in a group of 9 subjects.
Data frame containing raw focal observations' data, referring to dyadic social interactions. This data frame contains one focal observation per row and 3 columns:
focal subject's identification code.
recorded social interactions (SIs) in each focal sample.
observer's identification code.
In this example two different SIs were recorded (coded + and -); SIs codes, subjects' id codes, and separation characters should not overlap. The . character is used to separate subjects' id codes from the SIs' codes, and the ; character is used to separate different SIs occurring within the same focal sample. Whenever a subject's id appears before a SI's code it means that, that subject initiated a SI with the focal subject (see row 6); whenever a subject's id appears after the SI's it means that the focal subject (id1 column) initiated a SI with that subject (see row 4). For example, the 4th row indicates that the focal subject s1 initiated a + social interaction with subject s4, while the 6th row indicates that the focal subject s5 was involved in two social interactions- the first initiated by s4 (-), the second (+) initiated by s2. 0s in this column refer to focal observations where no SIs were recorded, and xs refer to focal observations where the focal subject was unavailable for observation.
