Introduction to Next Steps: a longitudinal study in England

The panel will provide an introduction to the study aims, content and design as well as a helpful look at some of the types of research that can be conducted using the study, including linked administrative data opportunities. 

Next Steps is an unique cohort study which follows the lives of around 16,000 people in England born in 1989-90. This ‘millennial’ generation grew up in a time of rapid technological change, have faced some of the highest university tuition fees and entered the labour market during the great recession, these and other experiences have framed their opportunities and expectations.

This webinar is aimed at new users of Next Steps, in particular but not exclusively researchers who are interested in social mobility, mental health, student debt, economic inequality, experiences throughout the pandemic and hospitalisation incidences. It aims to guide the user through the process of accessing and making effective use of the data for your own research projects.
