Welcome to our news and blogs. Here you’ll find the latest developments and insights from across our four longitudinal studies.
Four in five primary caregivers of nine-month-old babies reported cuddling, talking and playing with their little one several times a day, in the first national long-term study of babies in over two decades, led by UCL.
Our initial findings from the Millennium Cohort Study Age 14 Sweep cover a range of themes, from mental health to levels of obesity and risky behaviours.
To coincide with the Millennium Cohort Study time use diary and accelerometer data release, CLS Survey Manager, Dr Emily Gilbert, discusses how the use of new technology has enabled us to gain new insights into the lives of the millennial generation.
CLOSER’S 2017 conference on inequalities was an opportunity to share ideas and innovations with longitudinal researchers from across disciplines and sectors, both from the UK and abroad.
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.
Eleven-year-olds who have tried cigarettes or alcohol show signs of switching off from school and are more likely to get into trouble, according to findings from the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS).
Children who perform well at school at age 11 are more likely to use cannabis during their late teenage years, compared to those who show less academic promise.
Among women with young children, those in low-income households are more likely to exceed recommended levels on alcohol, according to a new study.
Young adults from working class homes are more likely to drink heavily if they smoked during their teenage years, whereas their middle class peers start drinking excessively if they go on to higher education.
This research project investigates the influence of work and family status on exercise and sedentary behaviour in childhood and adult life.
This research project uses evidence from all four of our cohort studies to investigate the short- and long-term health impacts of alcohol.
Incorporating seven projects, this programme explored two key themes which are both central to government policy: healthy lifestyles and the transmission of advantage and disadvantage from one generation to the next.
