Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Cohort and Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resources (CLOSER) project aims to maximise the use, value and impact of longitudinal research. It brings together eight leading longitudinal studies, the British Library and the UK Data Service, to stimulate interdisciplinary research, develop shared resources, provide training, and share expertise. Resources available from CLOSER include harmonised datasets (developed to facilitate cross-study comparisons) and CLOSER Discovery (a search engine that enables researchers to search and browse questionnaires and data from different longitudinal studies). CLOSER's website also includes a range of training materials focused on longitudinal studies and data. CLOSER is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) and is based at the UCL Institute of Education.

The CLOSER Workpackage 2 provides the harmonisation of socio-economic measures between the National Survey of Health and Development (NSHD), National Child Development Study (NCDS), 1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70), and the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS).

Further information about CLOSER can be found at www.closer.ac.uk.

The Harmonised Socio-Economic Measures in Four Longitudinal Cohort Studies: 1970 British Cohort Study includes the standardised Registrar General's Social Class (1990 version) for the BCS70.

The harmonised socio-economic measures for the MCS are held under SN 8306, for the NCDS under SN 8307, and for the NSHD are available under Special Access conditions - SN 8308.
