Lag Sequential AnalysisBakeman, R. (1986). Observing interaction : an introduction to sequential analysis. New York: Cambridge University Press.Lag sequential analysis is the examination of whether particular sequences of behavior occur more or less frequently than would be expected by chance.It could examine the sequence that a particular target event would occur subsequent to a given event having already occurred.
