Sequence analysis has recently experienced increasing interest in life course research and summarizes a variety of techniques to analyse whole "sequences", for example, employment or partnership histories. The interest, hereby, is not only to describe and visualize whole sequences, but also to compare and regroup similar sequences into clusters, which in turn can be used within other methods (e.g. 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:
First, the course introduces the general theoretical idea of sequences analysis and illustrates which kind of questions can be investigated by its mean within life course research.
Second, the course provides a practical introduction into sequence analysis based on Stata, focusing on describing and visualising sequences and on methods to compare and regroup sequences into clusters.
Participants should be interested in life course research and have experience in handling longitudinal data.
