This method permits analyzing the dynamics in the life course of individuals at various life transition points connected with their participation in various spheres of public life (education, work, family life, etc.). One of the strong points of the method is the possibility it offers of incorporating various forms of activeness displayed by individuals making life transitions, and the possibility of assessing the impact of activeness on these transitions.
