The National Child Development Study (NCDS) is following the lives of more than 17,000 people born across England, Scotland and Wales in a single week of 1958. Over the course of your lives, we have collected information on your health, your physical, cognitive and social development, your education and employment, your home lives, and your social participation and attitudes.
We’re Britain’s largest independent social research agency. For the last 50 years we’ve worked on behalf of government and charities to find out what people really think about important social issues and how Britain is run.
We understand you may have some questions about NatCen’s credentials and how we deal with personal information.
You can find all the information you need about the study, the 11th survey (2019-2021) and celebrate the first 60 years of NCDS on a dedicated website for participants.
