Abstract

The first survey of Next Steps, previously known as the 'Longitudinal Study of Young People in England' (LSYPE1) took place in 2004. The survey mainly focused on educational experiences, attitudes to school and involvement in education, expectations and aspirations. It also collected information on other aspects of cohort members' lives such as risky-, crime- and anti-social behaviours, and health. In total the interview consisted of five modules. The sample member completed one module - the young person interview, which lasted approximately 35 minutes. Adult interviews were also completed for household information, the main parent interview, second parent interview and child history. These lasted approximately 55 minutes altogether. The total interview time was 1 hour and 30 minutes. Of the 21,000 young people sampled at sweep 1 the survey reached 15,770 households (74%) in England.
