Teaching resources for NCDS and BCS70 now available online

8 November 2007

The initial sets of longitudinal data teaching resources for NCDS and BCS70 are now available on the CLS website.

The initial sets of longitudinal data teaching resources for NCDS and BCS70 are now available on the CLS website. The first set of resources is based on the Malaise Inventory, an established scale to measure signs of psychological distress or depression in teenagers or adults. The second set of resources is based on the Rutter Behaviour Scale, again, an established scale to measure signs of behaviour disorders in children that cohort members' parents in both NCDS and BCS70 have completed at various ages in childhood. The final set of resources documents is based on the most commonly used variables from the two studies, such as data on qualifications, social class, marital status, income, number and ages of children etc. Further teaching resources will be available by early next year.
