Impact case study: Reading for pleasure

A 2013 research paper by two academics at the Centre for Longitudinal Studies on the beneficial effects of reading for pleasure in childhood has attracted a remarkable amount of interest from schools, libraries and literacy organisations around the world. This case study shows how the findings have been used to help protect library services, to persuade children of all ages to spend more time reading, and to encourage parents to support schools’ home reading initiatives.

It uses data from the age 10 and 16 sweeps of the 1970 British Cohort Study.
