1970 British Cohort Study 38-year follow-up now available from UK Data Archive

27 August 2010

Data from the latest 1970 British Cohort Study follow-up are now available from the UK Data Archive. The survey was conducted when the cohort members were aged 38 and used a telephone interview for the first time.

The main aim of the survey was to explore the factors central to the formation and maintenance of adult identity in the following domains: lifelong learning; relationships, parenting and housing; employment and income; health and health behaviour; and citizenship and values. The main topics covered were: housing; relationship history; births and other pregnancies; periods of lone parenthood; children and the wider family (social relationships and support); family income; employment status/employment history; academic education; general health; and smoking.

Data are available for nearly 9,000 cohort members and can be linked to information from previous BCS70 surveys to provide longitudinal data from birth to 38 years.
