Conference

NCDS 60 years of our lives

8th March 2018 to 9th March 2018

Keynote speakers: Professors Richard Blundell, and Barbara Maughan

About the conference:

The British birth cohort studies are one of Britain’s greatest national treasures. The findings stemming from them have been prolific and far reaching.

The National Child Development Study (NCDS) will turn 60 years old in March 2018. At the Centre for Longitudinal Studies we are organising a conference to celebrate this anniversary. 

Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • present current work using cohort and longitudinal data
  • catch up on the latest developments in longitudinal methods
  • network with longitudinal researchers from across the social and biomedical sciences
  • hear from a special panel of distinguished researchers whose careers have been influenced by NCDS (including former directors John Bynner, Jane Elliott, and Heather Joshi; and others including Harvey Goldstein, John Goldthorpe and Chris Power)
  • find out about the frontiers of science using NCDS from a panel of leading researchers
