## Sequence of modal states

### Description

Sequence made of the modal state at each position.

### Usage

```
seqmodst(seqdata, weighted=TRUE, with.missing=FALSE)
```

### Arguments

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

`weighted` |
if |

`with.missing` |
If |

### Details

In case of multiple modal states at a given position, the first one is taken. Hence, the result may vary with the alphabet order.

### Value

an object of class *stslist.modst*. This is actually a state sequence object (containing a single state sequence) with additional attributes, among which the `Frequencies`

attribute containing the transversal frequency of each state in the sequence. There are print and plot methods for such objects. More sophisticated plots can be produced with the `seqplot`

function.

### Examples

```
## Defining a sequence object with the data in columns 10 to 25
## (family status from age 15 to 30) in the biofam data set
data(biofam)
biofam.lab <- c("Parent", "Left", "Married", "Left+Marr",
"Child", "Left+Child", "Left+Marr+Child", "Divorced")
biofam.seq <- seqdef(biofam, 10:25, labels=biofam.lab)
## Modal state sequence
seqmodst(biofam.seq)
## Examples using weights and with.missing arguments
data(ex1)
ex1.seq <- seqdef(ex1, 1:13, weights=ex1$weights)
seqmodst(ex1.seq)
seqmodst(ex1.seq, weighted=FALSE)
seqmodst(ex1.seq, weighted=FALSE, with.missing=TRUE)
```
