## Mean durations in each state

### Description

Compute the mean total time spent in each state of the alphabet for the set of sequences given as input.

### Usage

```
seqmeant(seqdata, weighted=TRUE, with.missing=FALSE, prop=FALSE, serr=FALSE)
```

### Arguments

`seqdata` |
a sequence object as defined by the |

`weighted` |
logical: if |

`with.missing` |
logical: if set to |

`prop` |
logical: if |

`serr` |
logical: if |

### Value

An object of class *stslist.meant*. There are `print`

and `plot`

methods for such objects.

### Examples

```
## Defining a sequence object with columns 13 to 24
## in the actcal example data set
data(actcal)
actcal.lab <- c("> 37 hours", "19-36 hours", "1-18 hours", "no work")
actcal.seq <- seqdef(actcal,13:24,labels=actcal.lab)
## Computing the mean time in the different states
seqmeant(actcal.seq)
## Mean times with their standard error
seqmeant(actcal.seq, serr=TRUE)
```
