Longitudinal Study of Young People in England

Series abstract

The Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE), also known as Next Steps, commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) is a major panel study of young people. The LSYPE is one of the main information sources for the formation and appraisal of policies relating to young people. The baseline data will be used to monitor the progress of the cohort group, evaluate the success of policies aimed at this group and provide an evidence base for further policy development.

There are now two separate LSYPE studies. The first LSYPE study began in 2004, when its sample of young people was aged between 13 and 14. The young people were interviewed annually until 2010 and there are now seven waves of data available. The second LSYPE study began in 2013 will track a sample of over 13,000 young people from the age of 13/14 annually through to the age of 20 (seven waves).
