Bookings are now open for the above workshop which will introduce the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS) and the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70), focusing on the newly available data from the surveys carried out in 2008 when the study members were aged 50 and 38 years respectively.

This event is designed for new and intending users of data from the studies and is jointly organised by the ESDS and the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the Institute of Education.

The taught component of the workshop includes presentations on:
