Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The National Child Development Study (NCDS) originated in the Perinatal Mortality Survey (see SN 5565), which examined social and obstetric factors associated with still birth and infant mortality among over 17,000 babies born in Britain in one week in March 1958. Surviving members of this birth cohort have been surveyed on eight further occasions in order to monitor their changing health, education, social and economic circumstances - in 1965 at age 7, 1969 at age 11, 1974 at age 16 (the first three sweeps are also held under SN 5565), 1981 (age 23 - SN 5566), 1991 (age 33 - SN 5567), 1999/2000 (age 41/2 - SN 5578), 2004-2005 (age 46/47 - SN 5579), 2008-2009 (age 50 - SN 6137) and 2013 (age 55 - SN 7669).
There have also been surveys of sub-samples of the cohort, the most recent occurring in 1995 (age 37), when a 10% representative sub-sample was assessed for difficulties with basic skills (SN 4992). Finally, during 2002-2004, 9,340 NCDS cohort members participated in a bio-medical survey, carried out by qualified nurses (SN 5594, available under more restrictive Special Licence access conditions; see catalogue record for details). The bio-medical survey did not cover any of the topics included in the 2004/2005 survey. Further NCDS data separate to the main surveys include a response and deaths dataset, parent migration studies, employment, activity and partnership histories, behavioural studies and essays - see the NCDS series page for details.
Further information about the NCDS can be found on the Centre for Longitudinal Studies website.
How to access genetic and/or bio-medical sample data from a range of longitudinal surveys:
A useful overview of the governance routes for applying for genetic and bio-medical sample data, which are not available through the UK Data Service, can be found at Governance of data and sample access on the METADAC (Managing Ethico-social, Technical and Administrative issues in Data Access) website.
The fifth sweep, carried out in 1991, was designed to obtain information from the cohort member, any husband, wife, or cohabitee, from the natural or adopted children of one in three cohort families, and from the mother of these children. The mother and child questionnaires are based on instruments used for the U.S. National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 1979 (NLSY79), specifically the NLSY79 Children and Young Adults sweep. The inclusion of these questionnaires in NCDS5 is designed to enable cross-national and other comparisons to be made.
The Centre for Longitudinal Studies updated the first six waves of NCDS in late 2006. Improvements made include further data cleaning and the addition of new documentation.
For the second edition (August 2008), the serial number has been replaced with a new one, variable Ncdsid. This change has been made for all datasets in the NCDS series. Further information may be found in the 'CLS Confidentiality and Data Security Review', included in the documentation.
NCDS5, conducted when the cohort members were aged 33, covered the following topics: education and training; employment history; housing history; partnership and family formation; income and wealth; health; health-related behaviour; citizenship and participation; parenting; cognitive and behavioural development and health of cohort members' children; attitudes and values; height and weight. The resulting dataset comprises three data files, covering the cohort member interview, the mother and child survey, and the partner interview.
