Abstract

Sweep 6 followed the approach carried out in Sweep 5, where the young person could complete the interview either online, over the telephone or face to face with an interviewer in their own home as they had done previously. Additionally, in line with Sweep 5, only the sample young person was interviewed (there were no parental interviews).

The survey content focused on educational and early labour market experiences, but also included information on other aspects of cohort members' lives including social participation and attitudes, risky-, crime- and anti-social behaviours, health and wellbeing, family formation, and aspirations for the future. Of the 11,225 young people issued at sweep 6, the survey reached 9,799 households (87%) in England.
