NCDS BCS - Childhood Risks and Outcomes of Social Exclusion: Insights from longitudinal data

Author:   John Bynner

Description:  This report was the second of two produced for the OECD (see Bynner 1996).  The first part is devoted to the concept of social exclusion and how it relates to ideas of risk and protection. The second part focuses on the idea of childhood risk and protection. The next two sections examine in more detail findings from longitudinal research, first on risk and protective factors and second on life course patterns leading to social exclusion in adulthood. The final section draws some general conclusions about the social exclusion process and considers some implications for policy.

NCDS - The Wider Benefits of Higher Education

Author:   John Bynner and Muriel Egerton

Description:  

This report was sponsored by HEFCE  and the Smith Institute and is available from the HEFCE website.
The research used NCDS data to assess the effects of higher education on a number of non-economic adult outcomes, with controls in place to take into account earlier family circumstances and earlier educational attainment. Outcomes were mainly assessed at age 33. Control variables spanned the period from 33 back to birth.

Gaining Basic Skills in the Early Years: The dynamics of development from birth to 10

Author:   Muriel Egerton and John Bynner

Description:  BCS70 collected data on cognitive development at 22 months and 42 months in sub-samples of the cohort. Analysis of the data has shown striking social class gradients, which widen over time. However, despite the handicap of restricted cognitive development earlier on, many children are able to over-ride their difficulties and experience normal educational development, including proficiency in the basic skills. The aim of the analyses reported here is to trace the performance over time of children who were low achievers at ages 22 months, 42 months and 5 years. The analyses identify factors in the child's lives which were 'protective' working against the consequences of 'risk' factors located in family backgrounds. Protective factors are identified by comparison with the performance of children where the predictability of risk was borne out in poor basic skills at age 10.

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.
