British Cohort Studies

Dr. Jennifer L. Maggs

Using the long-term longitudinal data from the National Child Development Study and the British Cohort Study 1970, we are examining consequences of heavy alcohol use during adolescence from adult status attainment, romantic relationship formation and dissolution, adult substance use and crime. Data for these NIAAA-funded secondary analyses began to be collected in 1958, and continue with the latest surveys at age 50 (NCDS) and age 38 (BCS) at the Centre for Longitudinal Studies at the University of London.
