National Child Development Study Age 60 Consultative Conference

Published on 31/05/2016

The Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) is an Economic and Social Research Council resource centre. It is based at the Department of Social Science, UCL Institute of Education, University of London.

CLS is responsible for running four of Britain’s internationally-renowned cohort studies, including the 1958 National Child Development Study (NCDS).

CLS is inviting members of the scientific community and those interested in this stage of life to take part in the consultative conference to help determine the content of the Age 60 Survey of the 1958 British birth cohort.

Delegates from the scientific community, government departments, members of the third sector and other stakeholders are invited to discuss the proposed content of the data collection instruments for the Age 60 Survey of the National Child Development Study (NCDS).

The conference will summarise submissions to the online survey consultation taking place from April-June 2016. More information on the online consultation is provided on the CLS website.

The Age 60 Survey provides the opportunity to collect a range of information from study members to aid the understanding of ageing across multiple life domains and its lifetime determinants, and help to identify effective policy intervention. It has the potential to inform a wide range of policies including relating to work, health, relationships, and civic participation.

This event is free to attend, but booking is essential. For more information visit the website.
