Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article presents sequence analysis as a method for analysing biographical data and aims to demonstrate its relevance in the research area of spatial mobility. The article first discusses the importance of understanding spatial mobility behaviours and their changes over individual lives in a life course approach. It then presents the key elements of single- and multichannel sequence analysis applied to spatial mobility behaviours and illustrates the method through an empirical example of employment-related mobility biographies and their links to relationship stability and fertility in France and Germany. The article concludes by suggesting some avenues for future research.
