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.

'illuminating ... a book for researchers who understand well the basic mechanics of event-history models and want to fine-tune their skills by reading what those working on the cutting edge of hazard-rate modeling have to say.' Jay D. Teachman, University of Maryland, Contemporary Sociology, Nov '93 `this is a well done, solid book and I recommend it to those teaching a course in elementary methods for the analysis of event history' European Journal of Population
