All available MCS data can be accessed through the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS) at the University of Essex.
In this section of the CLS website, you can find information on how to access data and where to find support in using it.
If you can’t find the help you need on these pages, please contact our user support team.
We ask researchers to contact us whenever they publish research using the cohort data. With up-to-date records, we can help other researchers avoid duplication and also demonstrate to funders how useful the data is to the research community.
