Changing Britain, Changing Lives: Three generations at the turn of the century

Author:   Elsa Ferri, John Bynner and Michael Wadsworth


This book provides a unique insight into social change in Britain in the second half of the twentieth century. It draws on three internationally renowned British birth cohort studies, based on tracking samples of people born in one week in 1946, 1958 and 1970 through surveys from birth, through childhood and adolescence and into adulthood. In 1999–2000 all three cohorts were surveyed in the same period, which provided the first-ever opportunity for a direct comparison of the lives of the three groups of people.
