# networkx.algorithms.community.quality.coverage¶

coverage(G, partition)[source]

Returns the coverage of a partition.

The coverage of a partition is the ratio of the number of intra-community edges to the total number of edges in the graph.

Parameters: G (NetworkX graph) partition (sequence) – Partition of the nodes of G, represented as a sequence of sets of nodes. Each block of the partition represents a community. The coverage of the partition, as defined above. float NetworkXError – If partition is not a valid partition of the nodes of G.

Notes

If G is a multigraph, the multiplicity of edges is counted.
