This research project aimed to optimise the design and coverage of the MCS age 14 time-use diary so as to maximise benefit to the research community and minimise non-response due to respondent burden.
The main aims of this research project is to repair and enhance the 1986 wave of data from BCS70 and to use the newly enhanced data to conduct a programme of multidisciplinary research.
Using linked data from the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS), this research project examined patterns of non-consent and non-coverage, and identifies weighting and imputation techniques that can adjust for biases.
