Age 5 Survey – Understanding mothers

To celebrate 50 years of BCS70, over the course of the year we’ll be highlighting interesting features of the study’s design, delving deeper into the questionnaires and pulling out descriptive statistics from the data.

During the Age 5 Survey, mums were asked about maternal depression and their child’s behaviour. The self-completion questionnaire included 43 questions to find out mums’ views on various topics, including child-rearing, maternal employment, television viewing and hospital visits.
