We need to end child poverty in order to break the cycle of poverty
Young Lives e-newsletter July 2014
Welcome to the latest issue of our newsletter featuring the latest news and events from Young Lives. We have recently released two new datasets into the UK Data Archive, so this issue focuses on data use and methods.
A dataset of constructed variables from Young Lives is now available for external researchers to access and use via the UK Data Service. We created the Constructed Files to facilitate longitudinal analysis of the first three rounds of the household and child survey. The dataset contains combined sub-sets of selected variables from Round 1 (2002), Round 2 (2006) and Round 3 (2009) of the survey, collected when the Younger Cohort children were aged 1, 5 and 8 years and the Older Cohort children aged 8, 12 and 15 years. The files contain about 200 original and constructed variables, most of them comparable across the three rounds, presented in a panel format and classified in four broad groups: panel information, general characteristics, household characteristics, and child characteristics.
