Table 7 Shows a set of formulated hypothesis for testing our results

From: TreeNet analysis of human stress behavior using socio-mobile data

H No Hypothesis granularity Hypothesis: description Pearson correlation p value Result: significant Direction
H1 Overall period People with more closeness centrality will have more stress than people with less closeness centrality −0.0568 Yes Negative
H2 Overall period An individual’s hierarchical position enables him/her to play the role of intermediary between other nodes, hence obtains more opportunities which makes his/her life more stressful 0.1214 No Positive
H3 Overall period The eigenvalue of an individual positions him/her as central nodes in a network and captures more information, hence feels more stressed −0.0611 Yes Negative
H4 Overall period An individual in a denser network will have more potential connections/relationships with other nodes and promote more sharing of resources, hence individuals are more stressed −0.0957 Yes Negative
H5 Overall period An individual who are well positioned in a network and reach to many people in few number steps are more stressful −0.0542 Yes Negative
