CLS is an ESRC Resource Centre based at the
Institute of Education

Aims of the presentation
  • Introduce the Millennium Cohort Study
  • Overview of data currently available
  • Discussion of new 2008 surveys and data that will
    be available in 2009
  • Overview of possible future developments
  • Introduction to consultation

3
Aims of MCS
  • To provide a multi-purpose long-term resource for
    the research and policy community
  • To chart the initial conditions of the social,
    economic and health advantages and disadvantages
    facing children in the new century and their
    consequences
  • To observe intergenerational transmission of
    advantage and disadvantage and the processes
    involved
  • To compare patterns of development with other
    British and international cohorts
  • To collect information on previously neglected
    topics, such as fathers involvement, child
    care
  • To investigate the wider social ecology of the
    family, including community and services,
    splicing in geo-coded data

MCS Study Design
  • Cohort born in all four seasons of the year
  • Includes children in England, Scotland, Wales and
    Northern Ireland
  • Geographically clustered by electoral ward
  • Over represents children from different ethnic
    groups and those in deprived areas

5
An initial snapshot
  • MCS began as an infant cohort study of nearly
    19,000 children living at 9 months in 398 areas
    of the UK
  • Children in England and Wales wereborn between
    September 2000 and August/2001
  • one academic year
  • Children in Scotland and Northern Ireland were
    born between 24/11/2000 and 10/1/2002
  • spans two academic years

6
MCS Surveys
  • 9 month Survey fieldwork in 2001/2002
  • Age 3 Survey fieldwork in 2003/2004
  • Age 5 Survey fieldwork in 2006 (calendar year)
  • Age 7 Survey fieldwork in 2008 (
    )
  • Next follow-up likely at age 11, fieldwork 2012
  • Age 14 2015
  • Age 17 2018

Number of Families responding in first 3 surveys

8
MCS Response a longitudinal view
Note Productive families are those with some
data from at least one survey instrument at each
wave
So far, a total of 13802 (i.e.13234 568) have
participated in all sweeps that they were
eligible for. This is about 72 of the MCS
cohort At MCS3, 1444 unproductive families at
MCS2 were recovered (3rd row)

  • BAS Pattern Construction at 5 and 7
  • Self Completed Questionnaire
  • New at age 7
  • Physical Measurements
  • Height
  • Weight ( Body fat at age 7)
  • Waist Measurement
  • Physical Activity, age 7 ( WT funded)

12
MCS Add-on Projects
  • Linkage to administrative data
  • Maternity and birth registration
  • Hospital and primary care records
  • School Records ( survey outside England)
  • Benefit and NI Records
  • Geo-coded data
  • Assisted fertility treatment ( MCS1 postal
    survey)
  • Oral fluid collection ( MCS2)
  • Nursery Observations ( MCS2)
  • Every Tooth Tells a Story ( postal collection)
  • Prediction and Prevention of Non-response ( MCS4)
  • Physical Activity ( MCS4)

13
What are the results?
  • 3rd descriptive report on MCS 3 due to be
    published on CLS website
  • Data from MCS 3 and age 5 teacher data collection
    in UK data Archive
  • Data from MCS 4 expected to reach Archive early
    2010
  • With documentation and enhancements as
    available.
  • The research community will help answer the
    question

14
What will come next?
  • Please join in the consultation about the
    proposed continuation on the survey into the
    adolescent years.
  • Key ages have been suggested, but not necessarily
    funded.
  • How should the follow-up balance between
    repeating content from the first 4 surveys and
    adapting to change
  • in the cohorts
    lives
  • in the world
    around them
  • and in data
    capture technology
  • How far and when should the balance of data
    collection shift from mother, father and teacher
    to the cohort member themselves?
  • Are the issues facing those growing up in the
    21st Century still congruent with the studys
    original aims?

15
Aims of MCS in the second decade
  • A multi-purpose long-term resource for the
    research and policy community more or less
    emphasis on biomarkers?
  • Charting the of the social, economic and health
    conditions facing the cohort and their
    consequences Which dimensions of development?
    Beyond uni-directional accumulation of cognitive
    attainment, academic attainments and avoidance of
    adult-reported behavioural difficulties, freedom
    from illness and disability identity,
    risk-taking, relationships, time use, physical
    activity, brain development ? The emergence of
    capabilities?
  • Observation of intergenerational transmission of
    advantage and disadvantage and the processes
    involved Aspirations and expectations, agency of
    young person, role of school and peers.
  • Comparison with other British and international
    cohorts
  • Opportunities opening up, co-ordination through
    EUCCONET
  • Collecting new information, eg fathers
    involvement ,- friends, internet, media,
    qualitative sub-studies, genetics, neuro-science?
  • To investigate the wider social ecology of the
    family, including community and services,
    splicing in geo-coded data Schools, siblings
