Organizer: Katja Dlouhy, U. of Mannheim
Organizer: Torsten Biemann, U. of Mannheim
This is an introductory workshop on sequence analysis, specifically on optimal matching analysis. Optimal matching analysis can be used to assess similarity of sequence data, and to find patterns in longitudinal nominal data. The workshop is targeted at scholars who want to get started with this method. The objective of the workshop is to encourage and enable participants to apply sequence analysis in their own research. After introducing fundamentals of the method, we will provide examples of its use in empirical career studies. Attendees will then develop practical, hands-on skills for using optimal matching analysis by analyzing a sample data set with career sequences. We will discuss important practical issues and introduce some advanced applications, giving enough room for discussion and questions.
