Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.National Child Development Study: Sweeps 1-6, 1958-2000, Self-Reported Measures includes derived variables that were developed as part of a research study examining risk and preventive factors for chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in the National Child Development Study (NCDS) (available from the UK Data Archive under GN 33004). Data on the outcome measures was assessed in 1999-2000 during Sweep 6 of data collection, at which point the cohort members were aged 42 years. The study examines a number of life course risk markers for CFS/ME and IBS including childhood adversity, childhood illness, physical activity and psychopathology in childhood and adulthood.
The data can be linked to the main NCDS data. Users are advised to also consult the main NCDS documentation which is available for individual Sweeps of the NCDS under 33004.
The study includes the following measures:
|Time period:||1958 - 2000|
|Dates of fieldwork:||June 2008 - May 2010|
No spatial unit
|Kind of data:||
Individual (micro) level
Respondents to main NCDS in Great Britain, Sweeps 1-6, 1958-2000.
The NCDS is an ongoing study. This study includes data from Sweeps 1-6 and outcome measures collected at Sweep 6.
No sampling (total universe)
|Number of units:||18,558 cases|
|Method of data collection:||
Compilation or synthesis of existing material
|Weighting:||No weighting used|
This study uses data from Sweeps 1-6 of the NCDS (available from the UK Data Archive under GN 33004).
