Project: AgeingTimeUse, Horizon 2020 ERC
Traditionally, a tool for analysing life events in social sciences, sequence analysis is becoming more and more popular for dealing with time-use data. In my tutorial, I walk you through the steps how to do sequence analysis with time-use data (American Time Use Survey, ATUS).
Example of Work Using Sequence Analysis
Here is an example how a published paper using sequence analysis looks like (my recent research in the Journal of Population Ageing):
- Kolpashnikova, K. and Kan, M. Y. (2021). Eldercare in Japan: Cluster Analysis of Daily Time-Use Patterns of Elder Caregivers. Journal of Population Ageing, 14(4), 441-463.
If you follow this tutorial, you will be able to recreate the analyses in the paper.

This workshop was held online for a few colleagues at Department of Sociology, the University of Oxford, in 2020.
