We undertake multidisciplinary research on issues that affect all our lives: child development, education, social mobility, health and wellbeing, families and family life, and ageing. We also conduct research into survey methods, and applied statistical methods.
Our applied statistical methods programme specialises in methods for dealing with attrition, causal identification, and data harmonisation.
Our research helps tackle some of the key challenges we face in our society today.
