Welcome to our news and blogs. Here you’ll find the latest developments and insights from across our four longitudinal studies.
Children conceived through medically assisted reproduction who are born small do just as well in cognitive tests during childhood and adolescence as naturally conceived children who are born a normal weight, finds a new study led by UCL researchers.
Researchers from around the world have been using CLS study data to tackle important questions. Here is a round-up over 40 new pieces of research that we’ve added to the CLS bibliography between October and December 2020.
Data collected from CLS’s four cohort studies will be used to help improve the understanding of the risk factors, symptoms and treatment of the long term effects of COVID-19, in a major new research project announced today.
Information from the NHS about cohort members’ health care and treatment in hospitals has now been linked to two longitudinal cohort studies, which have collected survey data over six decades – the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS) and the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70).
The 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70) has been an important source of evidence on midlife mental health, helping to improve our understanding about why middle age is such a vulnerable period for adults.
With the whole country in lockdown again, the UCL Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) is conducting another web survey of thousands of cohort study participants, to find out how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the lives of different generations of people in the UK.
Baby Boomers and Generation X are at the greatest risk of mental ill-health in middle age, finds new research by UCL.
Several administrative health records have recently been linked to the CLS cohort studies survey data, opening up new possibilities for health researchers. In this webinar, researchers found out what’s included in the linked datasets and how to access them.
The Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) has redeposited data from the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS) 2002-2004 Biomedical Sweep, with most data now available to researchers under the UK Data Service’s standard access arrangements (End User Licence) for the first time.
This project aims to develop a conceptual and empirical understanding of social isolation across the life course and generate comparable measures across cohorts.
Britain’s birth cohort studies have been some of the leading sources of evidence on women’s education, employment and pay, helping us to monitor and understand the possible factors behind the gender wage gap.
In this online workshop attendees will learn why principled methods of missing data handling are usually required to reduce bias and restore sample representativeness in long-running cohort studies. They will also discover how to undertake such analyses in practice. Analyses will be demonstrated using Stata, with a focus on multiple imputation. The 1958 National Child […]
