Sequence analysis has recently experienced increasing interest in life course research and summarizes a variety of techniques to analyse "sequences", for example, employment or partnership histories. Thereby, the interest is not only to describe and visualise sequences, but also to compare and regroup similar sequences into clusters, which in turn can be used within other methods (eg as independent variable in regression analyses). The course provides a basic introduction into sequence analysis, including its theoretical implication within life course research, and the practical skills required to conduct sequences analysis with STATA.
The course has two objectives:
•Introduce the general idea of sequences analysis and to illustrate which kind of questions can be investigated on its basis within life course research.
•Provides a practical introduction into sequence analysis based on STATA, focussing both on describing and visualising sequences and on methods to compare and summarise sequences into clusters.
