lifecourse: Quantification of Lifecourse Fluidity
Version 2.0

Provides in built datasets and three functions. These functions are mobility_index, nonStanTest and linkedLives. The mobility_index function facilitates the calculation of lifecourse fluidity, whilst the nonStanTest and the linkedLives functions allow the user to determine the probability that the observed sequence data was due to chance. The linkedLives function acknowledges the fact that some individuals may have identical sequences. The datasets available provide sequence data on marital status(maritalData) and mobility (mydata) for a selected group of individuals from the British Household Panel Study (BHPS). In addition, personal and house ID's for 100 individuals are provided in a third dataset (myHouseID) from the BHPS.
