Table 4 CNS dataset: Persistence of social and spatial behaviour. For each of the social and spatial metrics, \(\overline{d_{\mathrm{self}}}\) is the average self-distance and \(\overline{d_{\mathrm{ref}}}\) is the reference distance between an individual and all others, averaged across individuals. The third column reports the fraction of cases where \(\overline{d_{\mathrm{self}}(i)< d_{\mathrm{ref}}(i,j)}\), averaged across the population
