This short film takes a look back at the first 60 years of NCDS and highlights just some of the important discoveries that have been made, thanks to you.
To mark your 61st birthday, and to say thank you for everything you’ve given to the study over so many years, we sent you a copy of a special book, The story of your lives.
If you didn’t receive your copy or if you would like the content in a different format, please get in touch. You can view an online version of the book in colour below. A PDF version is also available to download below in both colour and black and white.
You’ll find a list of the research featured in the book, at the back of the book, so you can explore the findings in more depth if you would like to. The full references are also available here, and where a piece of research is available to read online we’ve included a link to it.
We couldn’t cover everything in the book, and there are so many more important findings we would have loved to have shared. Here on our website, you’ll find information about lots of other research using NCDS, and we also have a full bibliography of NCDS publications on the Centre for Longitudinal Studies website.
