About the event
This webinar is aimed at new users of the 1970 British Cohort Study, in particular, but not exclusively, researchers who are interested in physical health and exercise; mental health and well-being; families and relationships; education and cognition; and social mobility from early to midlife. It aims to guide you through the process of accessing and making effective use of the data for your own research projects.
This online webinar is free to attend and will be conducted live, with an opportunity to ask questions. Registrants will receive a link to a video recording and slide deck.
BCS70 follows the lives of around 17,000 people born across England, Scotland, and Wales in a single week of 1970. Survey data is currently available from birth to age 46 years, along with linked administrative health and geographical data, combined with biomedical, COVID-19 and other innovative data.
The data includes multiple measures of the cohort members’ physical, socio-emotional cognitive and behavioural development over time, as well as detailed information on their daily life, attitudes and experiences. Alongside this, rich information on employment, economic circumstances, parenting, relationships and family life is available.
