Following families over time and across studies: towards a generic definition of family composition for use in longitudinal analysis of children’s development

This paper presents the outcomes of a feasibility study within the e-STAT project whose goal was to design a transferable concept of family composition to be used in research that, for example, focuses on children’s development; to explore its potential for use with the main UK longitudinal studies; and to discuss its implementation in two key longitudinal studies (the British Household Panel Survey and the Millennium Cohort Study).
