The Age 17 Sweep

Data from the age 17 Sweep of the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) are now available to download from the UK Data Service. This sweep is the first to focus predominantly on hearing direct from the cohort members about their experiences at a pivotal point in their lives, on the cusp of adulthood.

In this webinar, discover the new data, covering a comprehensive range of topics, including: education and training, transitions to the job market, mental health and wellbeing, physical development, personality, identity, attitudes and expectations, engagement in risky behaviours, and social media activity.

The webinar will be valuable to those who:

  • Are interested in what’s new and in using data from MCS at age 17
  • Would like a brief update on MCS and what’s ahead
  • Have specific questions about the MCS

Organised into discrete sessions, guests can choose to join for the full webinar or log in at the beginning of the relevant session(s). A recording will be made of the webinar.

At the end of each presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions related to the topics discussed. The timings and areas covered in each session are outlined below:
