NCDS BCS70 'Forward Plan', Feb 2002

Author:   John Bynner

Description:  The aim of the Forward Plan was to integrate the timing, design and analysis of future surveys of NCDS and BCS70 – taking account of the sequencing of Britain’s third birth cohort study, the 1946 cohort (National Survey of Health and Development), housed at University College London. It was envisaged that such a programme would significantly enhance the research potential of the studies, enabling comparisons to be made between cohorts born at different times, or between different age groups at the same point in time.
