Data from the Age 17 Sweep of the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) are now available to download from the UK Data Service. This sweep is the first to focus predominantly on hearing direct from the cohort members about their experiences at a pivotal point in their lives, on the cusp of adulthood.

Discover what’s new, including data covering a comprehensive range of topics including education and training, transitions to the job market, mental health and well-being, physical development, personality, identity, attitudes and expectations, engagement in risky behaviours, and social media activity.

The webinar will be valuable to those who:

  • Are interested in what’s new and in using data from the MCS at age 17
  • Would like a brief update on the MCS and what’s ahead
  • Have specific questions about the MCS

The webinar runs from 2pm to 3pm GMT.

Organised into discrete sessions, guests can choose to join for the full webinar or log in at the beginning of the relevant session(s).
