Socioeconomic correlations in communication networks

Abstract : In this work we study the socioeconomic structure of a communication network by combining mobile communication records and bank credit informations of a large number of individuals living in Mexico. We provide empirical evidences about present economic unbalances suggesting not only the distribution of wealth but also the distribution of debts to follow the Pareto principle. Further we study the internal and interconnected structure of socioeconomic groups. Through a weighted core analysis we signal assortative correlations between people regarding their economic capacities, and show the existence of “rich-clubs” indicating present social stratification in the social structure.
