Welcome to our news and blogs. Here you’ll find the latest developments and insights from across our four longitudinal studies.
Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge today visited CLS to learn about the new Children of the 2020s study, and the invaluable contribution the centre’s existing birth cohort studies have made to our understanding of early child development.
The Next Steps Age 25 Sweep has provided valuable insights into the lives of young adults today.
People who exercise regularly are more likely to be satisfied with their lives, according to a new study.
Young adults who are employed on zero-hours contracts are less likely to be in good health, and are at higher risk of poor mental health than workers with stable jobs.
Sixty-four per cent of 25-year-olds disagreed or strongly disagreed with the statement that ‘Britain is a place where hard work is rewarded’, suggesting that many twentysomethings do not see Britain as a ‘meritocracy’.
Psychological problems are on the rise for young adults, with greater numbers reporting poor mental health in their mid-twenties than during adolescence.
This webinar introduced Next Steps (formerly the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England) to both first-time and more experienced users. It focused on the newly-available data from the age 25 survey. A recording of the webinar is available to view on the event page.
People who get a good night’s sleep are less likely to be overweight or obese, according to a new study.
Now that the participants have turned 25, this new data will allow researchers to explore how their educational choices, family resources and experiences in adolescence have influenced their life chances so far. The data includes extensive information about cohort members’ lives at this pivotal time.
Using data from the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) and Next Steps, this research project investigates the role of aspirations on social reproduction and social mobility across the divides of gender, ethnicity, disability and social class.
