Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The Cohort and Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resources (CLOSER) project aims to maximise the use, value and impact of longitudinal research. It brings together eight leading longitudinal studies, the British Library and the UK Data Service, to stimulate interdisciplinary research, develop shared resources, provide training, and share expertise. Resources available from CLOSER include harmonised datasets (developed to facilitate cross-study comparisons) and CLOSER Discovery (a search engine that enables researchers to search and browse questionnaires and data from different longitudinal studies). CLOSER's website also includes a range of training materials focused on longitudinal studies and data. CLOSER is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) and is based at the UCL Institute of Education.
Further information about CLOSER can be found at www.closer.ac.uk.
|The CLOSER: 1970 British Cohort Study Cross-Cohort Harmonised Data includes the standardised Registrar General's Social Class (1990 version) and the harmonised data on height, weight and BMI for the 1970 British Cohort Study and provides the original study identifier in order to allow the harmonised variables to be linked back to the individual study datasets.
This study covers employment and occupation and the harmonised anthropometric measures: height, weight, and BMI.
