Union Dissolution in the United Kingdom
Abstract: This article uses recent panel data to explore the dynamics of divorce in the United Kingdom. The findings are consistent with the independence hypothesis, but reveal little impact of
Unified BHPS Work-Life Histories: Combining Multiple Sources into a User-Friendly Format
Longitudinal data is often difficult to use, and continuous histories collected in a panel are a particularly unfriendly case. This paper reports an exercise to re-organise the British Household
Simulation in Sociology
Simulation has a long and checkered history in areas of substantive interest to sociology, from before Forrester's model of overpopulation to up-to-the-minute approaches based on complexity theory or
Purification and Characterization of Peroxidase Isoenzymes from Green Peas (Pisum sativum)
Peroxidase isoenzymes were purified from green peas with ion-exchange chromatography on DEAE- and S-Sepharose. Three isoenzymes were identified, one neutral (N) and two cationic (C1, C2). N was
Class careers as sequences : An optimal matching analysis of work-life histories
The authors apply optimal matching techniques to class careers from age 15 to age 35 for two moderately large samples, as a means of exploring the utility of this sequence-oriented approach for the
Optimal Matching Analysis and Life-Course Data: The Importance of Duration
The optimal matching (OM) algorithm is widely used for sequence analysis in sociology. It has a natural interpretation for discrete-time sequences but is also widely used for life-history data, which
SADI: Sequence Analysis Tools for Stata
The SADI package provides tools for sequence analysis, which focuses on the similarity and dissimilarity between categorical time series such as life-course trajectories. SADI‘s main components are

It is shown that these two countries share a broadly similar pattern of educational homogamy, which is quasi-symmetric in character, with no tendency for women to marry up over and above that which can be attributed to the gender difference in educational attainment.
Multiple Imputation for Life-Course Sequence Data
As holistic analysis of life-course sequences becomes more common, using optimal matching (OM) and other approaches the problem of missing data becomes more serious. Longitudinal data is prone to
