Deliverable 2.1 - Submit a Sequence Analysis Paper to a Journal

Project: AgeingTimeUse, Horizon 2020 ERC

Sequence analysis paper was published in the Journal of Population Ageing):

Writing this paper was a very rewarding process because this was the first time I used sequence analysis for a research publication. Following the work of other time-use scholars, I think that we managed to bring in some interesting insights to time-use research, particularly, that:

  1. weekday and weekend diaries need to be treated and analyzed separately;
  2. substitution cost needs to be the same for the activities in focus and those that are not because otherwise, the analysis cannot be distinguished from the analysis of aggregate time.
