1970s British Cohort Study - Life in Your Early 50s Survey
Over the course of your lives, we have collected information on all aspects of your lives, including your health, your physical, cognitive and social development, your education and employment, and your home lives.
Who are NatCen?
We’re Britain’s largest independent social research agency. For the last 50 years we’ve worked on behalf of government and charities to find out what people really think about important social issues and how Britain is run.
50 years' experience
NatCen have been carrying out high quality social research for over 50 years. We are a non-profit organisation, independent of all government departments and political parties.
Uncovering real opinions
We are commissioned by government and charities to uncover the real views of people in Britain today. What we find out is used to inform policy and make a difference to the lives of people across the nation.
Helping the nation
We are a charity and information from surveys we carry out is made publicly available. So it’s not just helping our clients, it’s used by other organisations trying to improve life in the UK.
