seqeweight {TraMineR} | R Documentation |

## Setting or retrieving weights of an event sequence object.

### Description

Event sequence objects can be weighted. Weights are used by other functions such as `seqefsub`

or `seqecmpgroup`

to compute weighted statistics.

### Usage

```
seqeweight(eseq, s)
seqeweight(eseq, s) <- value
```

### Arguments

`eseq` |
An event sequence object ( |

`value` |
Numerical vector containing weights |

`s` |
Deprecated. Use |

### Value

`seqeweight`

returns a numerical vector containing the weights associated to each event sequence.

### Examples

```
##Starting with states sequences
##Loading data
data(biofam)
## Creating state sequences
biofam.seq <- seqdef(biofam,10:25,informat='STS')
## Creating event sequences from biofam
biofam.eseq <- seqecreate(biofam.seq, weighted=FALSE)
## Using the weights
seqeweight(biofam.eseq) <- biofam$wp00tbgs
## Now seqefsub accounts for weights unless weighted is set to FALSE
fsubseq <- seqefsub(biofam.eseq, pmin.support=0.01)
## Searching for weighted susbsequences which best
## discriminate the birth cohort
discr <- seqecmpgroup(fsubseq, group=biofam$birthyr>=1940)
plot(discr[1:15])
```
