The economic and social value of health from childhood to later life is a research project that aims to generate new knowledge and expand understanding of the impact that a person’s physical and mental health has on their economic and social outcomes over their life course and across generations.

Through cross-cohort comparisons the project uses the UK’s series of nationally representative longitudinal datasets, including the National Child Development Study, the 1970 British Cohort Study, and the Millennium Cohort Study. The project is funded by the Health Foundation.

Attend and learn about key research from the project including:

  • The consequences of childhood behavioural and emotional problems (Sam Parsons)
  • Mental health and the pandemic (Vanessa Moulton)
  • Menopause and employment (Alex Bryson and Darina Peycheva).

Hear from a panel of experts as they discuss the implications of the research findings for policymaking and for health promotion.

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in: anthropology, demography, economics, epidemiology, gender studies, psychology, public health sciences, social science, sociology and survey methodology.

See more information about the event on the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) website.
