Returns an iterator for (node, out-degree) or out-degree for single node.

out_degree(self, nbunch=None, weight=None)

The node out-degree is the number of edges pointing out of the node. This function returns the out-degree for a single node or an iterator for a bunch of nodes or if nothing is passed as argument.

  • nbunch (single node, container, or all nodes (default= all nodes)) – The view will only report edges incident to these nodes.
  • weight (string or None, optional (default=None)) – The edge attribute that holds the numerical value used as a weight. If None, then each edge has weight 1. The degree is the sum of the edge weights.

  • If a single node is requested
  • deg (int) – Degree of the node
  • OR if multiple nodes are requested
  • nd_iter (iterator) – The iterator returns two-tuples of (node, out-degree).
