About the webinar

This webinar introduces Next Steps (formerly the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England) to both first-time and more experienced users, focusing on the newly-available data from the age 25 survey.

Next Steps is a multi-disciplinary study which began in 2004, when the study members were aged 13-14, and followed the lives of around 16,000 people born in England in 1989-90. This study was originally managed by the Department for Education and was transferred to the Centre for Longitudinal Study (CLS) in 2013 with the support from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

Now that the study participants have turned 25 we are able to see how their educational choices, family resources and experiences in adolescence have influenced their life chances. The age 25 data includes extensive responses and valuable insights into the cohort members’ lives at this pivotal time. Next Steps’ field of enquiry covers such diverse topics as relationship formation; labour market relations; housing; physical and mental health; income and poverty; family environment; and ethnicity.
