Event History Analysis in Life Course Research

The studies included represent work done in the following organizations: The Max Planck Institute in West Germany; The U.S. Social Science Research Council’s Committee on Comparative Stratification; The Special Research Unit of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft; and MASO, and informal German working group on mathematical sociology.

This book is one of twelve in the University of Wisconsin Press’s Life Course Studies series, arranged by the series editors David L. Featherman and David I. Kertzer. .
