10. Conclusion

This book constitutes the first review of the techniques of event history analysis in demography. During the 1970s, the amount of reliable data made available as a result of surveys increased enormously. At the same time, statistical and computational techniques developed to allow the new data to be handled.

This treatment of the subject gives a detailed treatment of the techniques of event history analysis. It provides not only a thorough description of models, but also a theoretical presentation of this new research path without losing sight of the underlying application to population dynamics.

It will serve as a handbook of methodology for demographers and other social scientists interested in the study of the timing of events in individual lives.
