I beg the indulgence of the list to self-publicise, but it is Stata

I will be giving a short course on Sequence Analysis, 90% Stata
based, as part of the Essex Summer School in Social Science Data
Analysis and Collection (, July 13-15.

Full course details are at

Sequence Analysis in this context refers to analysis of
longitudinal data such as life-course or labour market career data,
using methods such as the optimal matching algorithm to generate
similarity scores between pairs of trajectories, usually as a
prelude to creating data-driven classifications of the histories
using cluster analysis.

The focus will be on practical use of sequence analysis, and will
exploit a number of algorithms, including OMA and Elzinga's
approaches. It will consider cluster analysis and multidimensional
scaling, and the use of the results in further analysis. Software
used will centre on Stata, using Mata and plugins, the SQ Stata
package of Kohler, Luniak and Brzinsky-Fay, along with TDA and
Elzinga's CHESA.

The course will take 2.5 full days, Friday 13 to Sunday 15 July,
and applications are possible at
