ICLS research looks at how the social circumstances in which people live translate into poor health and unfavourable social outcomes across all stages of the life course. Its researchers use data gathered regularly on the same people across their lives - longitudinal studies which follow thousands of people, collecting information about their health, education, work, family and life experiences. In this episode of The Lifecourse Podcast, Mel Bartley explains 'life gets under our skin'.
