  1. The indexes are the number of nodes (NN), the number edges (NE), global clustering coefficient (GCC), degree assortativity coefficient (AC), average shortest path length (AP), the node proportion of the giant component (PG). The AP of the first two networks are approximately calculated by sampling 400,000 pairs of nodes.
