Longitudinal Methodology Series IV – ‘The origins and development of the lifegrid method of collecting retrospective data’ – David Blane, Emeritus Professor at Imperial College London.

This presentation described the origins and development of the lifegrid method of collecting retrospective data – it started from unstructured, in-depth interviews with elderly patients in general practice; through to validation studies in the Boyd Orr cohort and the Mass Observation archive; to substantive field work with a sub-sample of the Boyd Orr study; to a CAPI version developed by Kate Smith and Carli Lessof, with advice from Bob Belli, at National Centre for Social Research; to use of the CAPI version by ELSA, SHARE and KLOSA.
