The dataset consists of network attributes (vertex betweenness and nodal efficiency) computed to examine the impact of COVID-19 impacts on the economy. Spatial interaction is pertinent for economic activities, therefore we hypothesize that changes in the spatial interaction network will have a commensurate impact on the economic output of the node within the network. The data utilized for this computation were collated from Facebook Data For Good - GeoInsight Platform. From this we collected movement data capturing the number of Facebook user moving from one State to the other in Nigeria. The computation of the network attributes was carried out with R packages (brainGraph - nodal efficiency and igraph - betweenness).
