CLS workshop, Longitudinal data across life: an introduction to using cohort data - 14 March
14/03/2018 - Hadyn Ellis Building, Cardiff University

Longitudinal data are a powerful resource for addressing a wide range of scientific questions in various social, health, political and geographical sciences.
For example, what determines health across life? How has social mobility changed? What determines voting preferences?

This workshop will give both first-time and more experienced data users an insight into four of the UK’s internationally-renowned cohort studies run by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS):
• 1958 National Child Development Study;
• 1970 British Cohort Study;
• Millennium Cohort Study;
• Next Steps (previously known as the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England).

Date & time: Wednesday 14 March / 10:30 – 14:00
Venue: Hadyn Ellis Building, Cardiff University
