Social Trajectories and Health

Projects using the Office for National Statistics Longitudinal study and data from the 1981, 1991 and 2001 Censuses, are examining intergenerational and age cohort changes over the last three decades. In particular, we are looking at changes in family arrangements, area of residence and indices of deprivation, and how changes relate to health outcomes for the main ethnic groups.
