The creation of an administrative data based 1936 birth cohort study
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this project is to create a new 1936 Birth Cohort Study from routine and administrative data. It is structured around the existing Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS). We took the SLS birth date sample from the Scottish Mental Survey of 1947 (SMS1947) and linked it to the 1939 Register, the National Health Service Central Register (NHSCR) and the SLS. The outcome is a powerful life-course dataset containing information from childhood to old age.
