Example data set: sequences of family formation

Description

This data set contains 5 sequences of family formation histories, used by Elzinga (2008) to introduce several metrics for computing distances between sequences. These sequences don't contain information about the duration spent in each state, they contain only distinct successive states.

Usage

data(famform)

Format

A data frame with 5 rows and 1 variable.

Details

The sequences are in ‘STS’ format and stored in character strings with states separated with ‘-’.

This data set is used in TraMineR's manual to crosscheck some results with those presented by Elzinga.
