Wellbeing over the life course: Learning from the British cohort studies

25th November 2016 9:45 to 15:30

About the workshop

Wellbeing research based on longitudinal data is able to provide invaluable insights into how we, as a society, can work together to improve our quality of life.

In partnership with the What Works Centre for Wellbeing, the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) is hosting a one-day workshop exploring the ways in which data sourced from longitudinal birth cohort studies can be used to inform wellbeing research. In addition to discovering what datasets and measures are currently available, delegates will find out about the latest research, and gain a first-hand insight into how use these datasets during a live methods and data demonstration.

This workshop is open to all those interested in using cohort data to analyse wellbeing, in particular we welcome policymakers, third sector representatives and academics wanting to undertake well-being research using cohort studies. The workshop will be aimed primarily at new data users, but experienced users are also welcome.
