Has the relationship between people’s health and their social outcomes changed between the generations, given major changes in factors that influence people’s health, both positively and negatively?
The economic and social value of health from childhood to later life is a research project that aims to generate new knowledge and expand understanding of the impact that a person’s physical and mental health has on their economic and social outcomes over their life course and across generations.
Through cross-cohort comparisons the project uses the UK’s series of nationally representative longitudinal datasets, including the National Child Development Study, the 1970 British Cohort Study, and the Millennium Cohort Study. The project is funded by the Health Foundation.
