Archer, G., Xun, W. W., Stuchbury, R., Nicholas, O., Shelton, N. (2020) Longitudinal and Life Course Studies, 20(20), 1–24 [ONS LS]

Other information:

This study compared the NCDS with the ONS LS – a ‘gold-standard’ national reference population. Participants from the most recent NCDS 55-year survey were mostly unrepresentative of age-matched LS respondents. Despite differences in sample characteristics, longitudinal associations were similar in the NCDS and LS samples.
