National Child Development Study and 1970 British Cohort Study: Introductory workshop

10th May 2012 9:30 to 16:30

This workshop will introduce the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS) and the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70), focusing on the newly available data from the surveys carried out in 2008 when the study members were aged 50 and 38 years respectively.

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.

This event is designed for new and intending users of data from the studies and is jointly organised by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the Institute of Education and the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS) at the University of Essex.
