I have observed nurses during 400 episodes of care and recorded the sequence of surfaces contacts in each.

I categorised the surfaces into 5 groups 1:5 and calculated the probability density functions of touching any one of 1:5 (PDF).

PDF=[ 0.255202629   0.186199343 0.104052574 0.201533406 0.253012048]

I then predicted some 1000 sequences using:

for i=1:1000 % 1000 different nurses
    seq(i,1:end)=randsample(1:5,max(observed_seq_length),'true',PDF);
end

eg.

 seq =     1     5     2     3     4     2     5     5     2     5

stairs(1:max(observed_seq_length),seq) hold all

enter image description here

I'd like to compare my empirical sequences with my predicted one. What would you suggest to be the best strategy or property to look at?
