    Abstract

    Dans l?enquête Biographies et entourage réalisée par l?Ined en 2001, la reconstitution des événements factuels qui jalonnent les trajectoires familiale, résidentielle et professionnelle des personnes a été assortie d?éléments subjectifs. Il s?agissait de prendre en compte le regard porté a posteriori sur leur vie par les enquêtés qui étaient ainsi amenés à proposer un découpage explicité de leur trajectoire, à identifier et à interpréter les périodes signifiantes de leur vie, les tournants et la tonalité générale de leur biographie ainsi que les événements considérés comme marquants. Les premières analyses de ce matériau foisonnant montrent la façon dont la trajectoire des individus se structure autour de certains jalons factuels, en particulier ceux qui marquent la vie conjugale. Le vécu et la caractérisation des événements ne sont cependant pas donnés a priori et l?on constate l?intérêt de ces évaluations rétrospectives, qui s?avèrent nuancées et non conventionnelles. La possibilité de confronter le sens que les individus confèrent au déroulement de leur vie et les éléments factuels de celle-ci constitue une véritable richesse d?information pour l?interprétation des tournants et ruptures biographiques.
