The Age 5 survey went into the field at the beginning of 2006, and was completed in 2007. The number of families interviewed at the Age 5 Survey was 15,246 (79.2% of the cohort). Information was also collected from schools on the child’s first full year, either from administrative records in England or through a survey of teachers in the Celtic countries.
