This webinar focuses on conducting cross-study comparisons across time, in the British birth cohorts and other datasets and provides insights into the benefits and importance of conducting cross-study comparisons in the social and health sciences – offering guidance and suggestions on methodological issues and other considerations.

The speakers will briefly discuss the opportunities of cross-study comparison research, and emphasise key areas to consider including target populations, measurement, harmonisation and interpretation.

The guidance offered applies when using any of the CLS cohorts or similar studies. This online webinar will be followed by a Q&A, with a recording published on the CLS YouTube channel after the event.
