The British Birth Cohort studies are among the most powerful tools for social science researchers. By tracking the same individuals over decades, we can get much stronger evidence about the real causes of social problems than by other methods. We can develop an understanding of how circumstances in early life impact on later life chances. For example, we can look at the factors that influence the qualifications that individuals obtain, and the returns that they get from those qualifications.

In this presentation, Professor Jane Elliott will introduce some of the landmark research carried out using longitudinal evidence from the cohort studies, and examine some of the opportunities for future research as the studies develop.
