    MCS1: Infant Mortality in the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) Sample Areas

    Author:   Andrew Cullis

    Description:  

    This report investigates how many children in the birth cohort (from which the MCS was sampled) did not survive long enough to be included in the survey which took place at 9 months.  Not only would infant mortality within the birth cohort result in some cases with early deaths being missed out of MCS, but the possibility of differential infant mortality between social groups could bias the sample of survivors.

    MCS1 - Technical Report on Instrument Development and Fieldwork

    Author:   Andrew Shaw, Lisa Calderwood

The next chapter (2) details the development work undertaken to prepare the first sweep, which included a pilot survey and dress rehearsal. Readers needing information solely on the main survey and not on the ‘hows and whys’ of development, may wish to skip this chapter. Chapter 3 outlines the sample design and explains the procedures for respondent selection. Chapter 4 summarises the final survey instrumentation and Chapter 5 describes how the fieldwork was conducted. Chapter 6 discusses the progress of fieldwork, quality control thereof and issues which arose during this phase. Chapter 7 covers the verification of information on the achieved sample and the dispatch of thank you letters to respondents. Chapter 8 accounts for the survey response and Chapter 9 describes
    procedures for coding, editing and preparation of the data. Various documents used in the study are to be found in the Appendix.
