Abstract

The ten-year follow up was the second full, national follow-up of the BCS70 cohort. It was designed to review and evaluate mid-childhood health, care, education, social and family environment throughout Britain.

A number of considerations influenced the development of the survey instrumentation used. A major factor was the desire to examine ten year-old children's educational achievement and the ways in which it was influenced by other events. A wide range of earlier developmental, educational, social and health factors recorded previously on the same cohort could be influential and there was a particular focus on the effects of pre-school education and daycare, and learning disabilities.

Health itself was another major focus of the follow-up, to provide a comparison with information gathered during the five-year follow-up. The comprehensive nature of the data gathered in this longitudinal study from birth onwards enables the examination of the effects on the ten year-old child's education, health and general progress, of perinatal problems, serious illnesses and critical episodes in the family or social environment.
