On 10th March 2021, SESC Research Associate Dr Laura Carter gave a talk at a series arranged by the Medical Research Council (MRC) National Survey of Health and Development (NSHD) to mark the 75th birthday of the 1946 cohort. The NSHD is the oldest continuous national birth cohort study in the world and it is unique in having data from birth on the health and social circumstances of a representative sample of men and women born in England, Scotland or Wales in March 1946. Laura discussed ‘How historians are using the childhood questionnaires’, with a focus on how SESC have used the data from the 1946 cohort to inform our research.
The talk is available to watch via YouTube, and can be found below. Many thanks to all those involved in organising this fascinating series of talks.
