Sequence analysis (SA) developed as a technique to study social processes that unfold over time as sequences of events. It has gained increasing attention as the availability of longitudinal data made it possible to address sequence-oriented questions. This volume introduces the basics of SA to guide practitioners and support instructors through the workflow of sequence analysis. The presentation of statistical, substantive, and theoretical foundations is enriched by examples to help the reader understand the advantages and disadvantages of specific analytical choices. The extensive ancillary material supports self-learning by offering exercises and solutions based on real data and research questions in the field of life course research. Finally, the book considers recent advances and innovations in SA.
