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 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.
