The Six Degrees of Francis Bacon dataset consists of five tables, included here as CSV files. The contents of these files are as follows: SDFB_people contains a record for every historical person cataloged in Six Degrees, including a unique 8-digit ID number for each individual and, where available, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography ID numbers for the same. SDFB_relationships contains a record for every social relation in Six Degrees. The ID numbers in person1_index and person2_index refer back to the unique IDs in the SDFB_people table. Each relationship also has its own unique 9-digit ID. SDFB_relationship_types contains information on the type and category assigned to particular relationships. Since a relationship can have more than one type, the same relationship (referred to in this table by its unique ID from the SDFB_relationships table) can appear in multiple records. SDFB_groups contains a record for each group cataloged in Six Degrees. Every group has a unique ID. SDFB_group_assignments contains a record for every group membership in Six Degrees. Each row consists of a person ID from SDFB_people and a group ID from SDFB_groups to signify that a person was a member of that group.
