The Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) is a world-renowned national longitudinal birth cohort study that follows the lives of 19,000 babies born in the UK in 2000–2001. This event will provide an overview of the MCS and its findings, with a specific focus on Wales.
MCS covers diverse topics including parenting; childcare; school choice; child behaviour and cognitive development; health; parents’ employment and education; income and poverty; housing, neighbourhood and residential mobility; and social capital and ethnicity.
Speakers include Professor Emla Fitzsimons (UCL), Professor Chris Taylor (Cardiff University) and Richard Thurston (Welsh Government). An audience Q&A and discussion will follow each presentation.
