Most of the numbers were crunched in our database, and:

– Statistics New Zealand (2008) ‘Degrees of Separation in the New Zealand Workforce: Evidence from linked employer-employee data’ available online.

– Sorenson, O., and Stuart, T. (2001) ‘Syndication Networks and the Spatial Distribution of Venture Capital Investments’, American Journal of Sociology, 106(6), 1546–1588.
