Data Dictionary


There are over 15,000 BCS70 variables in the seven full sweeps to 2004.  The task of finding the right ones for the research you want to undertake can be daunting.  However, using the BCS70 Data Dictionary can help you make sense of which variables to use.

The Online Data Dictionary is a searchable database containing a ‘record’ for every variable in all the main sweeps since birth. It is structured to reflect the data collection by subject within questionnaire/instrument, and you can also use a free text search.
