Introductory NCDS/BCS70 Workshop

29th November 2011 to 30th November 2011

On Tuesday 29 November, the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) will hold a one-day introductory workshop on the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS) and the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70), focusing on data from the surveys carried out in 2008 when the study members were aged 50 and 38 years respectively.

This event is designed for new and intending users of data from the studies and is jointly organised by CLS at the Institute of Education and the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS). It will be held at the Institute of Education, London.

The taught component of the workshop includes presentations on: survey design, data coverage and methodology; patterns of attrition; using the data dictionaries; and accessing the data.

The hands-on component provides participants with the opportunity to carry out SPSS or Stata analyses using sub-sets of NCDS/BCS70 data, with support from members of the CLS cohort studies team.

There is a non-refundable charge of £60 (£30 for HE students) for attending, which includes lunch and workshop documentation.
