National Child Development Study (NCDS)
About the study
The National Child Development Study (NCDS) is following the lives of more than 17,000 people born across England, Scotland and Wales in a single week of 1958. Over the course of your lives, we have collected information on your health, your physical, cognitive and social development, your education and employment, your home lives, and your social participation and attitudes.
