Webinar: Introduction to the Millennium Cohort Study and the Age 14 Survey

28th February 2017 14:00 to 17:00

This webinar introduces the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) to both first-time and more experienced users, focusing on the newly-available data from the age 14 survey.

Now that the study participants are entering young adulthood much of what happens to them at this age will influence the paths they take later in life. The age 14 data includes extensive responses and valuable insights into the cohort members’ lives at this pivotal time.

This webinar will be suitable for:

  • Those new to MCS
  • Experienced users interested in learning about the age 14 data
  • Researchers looking to find out more about new features of the study, such as the use of activity monitors and time-use records, as well as the collection of biological samples.

Organised into four sessions, guests can choose to join for the full webinar or, can log in at the beginning of the relevant session(s).
