SADI: Sequence analysis tools for Stata

Abstract.  The SADI package provides tools for sequence analysis, which focuses on the similarity and dissimilarity between categorical time series such as life-course trajectories. SADI's main components are tools to calculate intersequence distances using several different algorithms, including the optimal matching algorithm, but it also includes utilities to graph, summarize, and manage sequence data. It provides similar functionality to the R package TraMineR and the Stata package SQ but is substantially faster than the latter.
