Thank you very much for everyone who contributed to the Millennium Cohort Study Age 17 Survey: Consultative Conference, and helped make the event such a success. We received very good feedback across the board and look forward to some positive results being produced as a result.
Delegates from the scientific community, government departments, members of the third sector and other stakeholders gathered to discuss the proposed content of the data collection instruments at the MCS7 survey.
We sought audience views on the proposals which were presented at the conference. The presentations will be available after the conference on the CLS website by the end of November. We will have open discussion at the conference, which will continue via the CLS website until the end of December 2015.
The Age 17 scientific consultation contains three broad themes, which encapsulate all of the above dimensions:
1. Activities and daily life
2. Socio-emotional development
3. Cognitive development

Emla is the Director of the UK Millennium Cohort Study, a longitudinal birth cohort study following children born at the turn of the new century. Her research is focused on the development of human capital throughout the life course, and in particular how experiences and circumstances in early life and childhood affect causally the acquisition of skills later on.
