The generalisation of the local clustering coefficient to weighted networks by Barrat et al. (2004) considers the value of a triplet to be the average of the weights attached to the two ties that make up the triplet. In this post, I suggest three additional methods for defining the triplet value.

Average shortest distance in weighted networks Operationalisation of tie strength in social networks

I actually came up with a (local) weighted clustering coefficient which I use to find cohesion in language: this is simply the sum of the products of the paths and can deal with weighted, ‘unweighted’ (i.e. uniform weights) and both directed and undirected graphs.
