The Millennium Cohort Study (MCS), is following the lives of around 19,000 people born across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in 2000-02.
The cohort have been reaching the milestone age of 21 at a particularly turbulent time in British history. The early 20s are an exceptionally dynamic period of life, traditionally characterised by five transitions – in employment, education, partnerships, fertility and residence. This generation, however, is facing unprecedented times as it navigates these major life transitions, with the cost-of-living crisis following on from extensive educational and employment disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic, alongside growing societal concern over both climate change and political polarisation.
This conference will be an opportunity to explore some of the wide ranging and policy-relevant longitudinal research that has been generated using MCS data over the past 21 years, to hear about new research findings, and to learn about the upcoming Millennium Cohort Study Age 22 Sweep.
