Data Notes

The following data notes are available for the MCS5 (age 11) survey:

The 5th sweep of the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS5) introduced the cohort to two cognitive tests drawn from the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery   Although a subsample of the National Child Development Study (NCDS) cohort members undertook these tests.  MC5 is the first of the British Cohort Studies to administer such tests to the full cohort sample. Two tests from the CANTAB battery were administered – the Spatial Working Memory task (SWM) and Cambridge Gambling Task (CGT).
