Up to one in five adults with a history of poor mental health reported they were ‘much worse off’ financially a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to one in ten of those who had never had psychological problems in adulthood.
Drawing on evidence from across the longitudinal studies in CLOSER, and beyond, this workshop discussed the evidence gathered to date on the use of new technologies to measure non-health topics. This workshop was hosted by CLOSER.
This webinar introduced the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) to both first-time and more experienced users. It focused on the newly-available data from the age 14 survey. A recording of the webinar is available to view on the event page.
Users of Centre for Longitudinal Studies data are asked to respond to an online survey by 17 March as part of an ESRC review into the impact of its data infrastructure investments. Click here to access the online survey. It will take 10-15 minutes to complete. The review includes CLS and the cohorts it manages: […]

New research from the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) has tested how children’s responses to surveys are affected by the way the questions are asked.
Encouraging respondents to contact an interviewer to book their own interview appointment could reduce the cost of longitudinal surveys, new research from the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) suggests.
