Who will use the information?

The linked survey and administrative information will be used for research purposes only. Like your study responses, this information will be used by professional academic and social policy researchers for non-commercial research and statistics.

The information will be made available to researchers under restricted access arrangements via the UK Data Service (UKDS) or similar organisation. This means that access to the data will only be granted in a secure research environment and after a successful application procedure, assessed and approved by the National Child Development Study team and by the named government department or agency (if required). This is to make sure this information is used responsibly and safely.

This information will never contain your name, address, date of birth, NHS or NI number.
