As our look back at the 1970 British Cohort Study through the 2010s draws to a close, let us whisk you away on a tour of the decade just gone by. It was a chaotic, busy time, from the heady days of the Olympics to the first whispers of coronavirus, and everything in between – Brexit, austerity, climate change…
Study members entered their 40s, and many of them raised children and progressed through their careers. We checked in with them twice, asking them, among other things, about their views and mental health, and carrying out a range of health checks.
We’ve made important discoveries from the information they provided throughout this decade, including on reading, obesity and mental health in midlife. We’re excited to follow the next chapter in their lives.
But before we move on to 2020 and the future, take a moment to reminisce about the recent past – and enjoy the show!
