Description

Growing up in Scotland is a longitudinal research study tracking the lives of thousands of children and their families from the early years, through childhood and beyond. The main aim of the study is to provide new information to support policy-making in Scotland but it is also intended to provide a resource for practitioners, academics, the voluntary sector and parents. It studies two birth cohorts and their parents, with 8 sweeps of the first birth cohort already completed or in the field. This makes good skills in data management and manipulation a prerequisite for using the data effectively, as well as knowledge of how to deal with panel or repeated measures designs in analysis of the data.
