This workshop will introduce the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS) and the 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70), focusing on the data from the surveys carried out when the study members were aged 50 and 38 years respectively.
The taught component of the workshop includes presentations on: survey design, data coverage and methodology; patterns of attrition; using the data dictionaries; and accessing the data.
The hands-on component provides participants with the opportunity to carry out SPSS or Stata analyses using sub-sets of NCDS/BCS70 data, with support from members of the CLS cohort studies team.
There is a non-refundable charge of £60 (£30 for HE students) for attending, which includes lunch and workshop documentation.
This event is designed for new and intending users of data from the studies. It is jointly organised and delivered by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the Institute of Education, University of London, who are responsible for the studies; and the UK Data Service at the University of Essex, who make data from the studies available for research
