Following the success of the International Conference on Child Cohort Studies earlier this month, CLS have launched an International Zone on their website.
CLS is currently hosting a visitor from Australia. Carol Soloff is the Project Manager for Growing Up in Australia, the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC), a study very similar to CLS's Millennium Cohort Study (MCS).
A study of people now in their 40s has revealed that those who went to single-sex schools were more likely to study subjects not traditionally associated with their gender than those who went to co-educational schools.
CLS has set up a new working group to discuss measures of cognition and personality in the next round of NCDS and BCS70 fieldwork.
