The Dept of Sociology at Stockholm University offers a course in event-history techniques. The course is at advanced level for students who want to learn how to analyze duration data. It provides an introduction to advanced demographic methods and their applications to longitudinal life-course data, including data stemming from population registers. Different approaches and strategies for analyses of duration data are presented. Students develop own analytical skills in computer-based exercises as well as a sound methodological understanding of literature based on event-history analyses.
The course is provided at 70% of full-time study during October 4 – December 5, 2012. It consists of 10.5 ECTS and is at advanced level in Demography.
