The Centre for Longitudinal Studies is the research centre for large scale, long-term data management, providing information on birth cohort studies. It is based in the institute of Education at the University of London.

It is an ESRC Resource Centre based at the IoE. CLS houses three of Britain's internationally-renowned birth cohort studies:

National Child Development Study (NCDS)[1]

1970 British Cohort Study (BCS70)[2]

Millennium Cohort Study (MCS): 2000 birth cohort

The studies were key sources of evidence for a number of UK Government inquiries such as the Plowden Committee on Primary Education (1967), the Warnock Committee on Children with Special Educational Needs (1978), the Finer Committee on One Parent Families (1966–74), the Acheson Independent Inquiry into Inequalities in Health (1998) and the Moser Committee on Adult Basic Skills (1997–99). A study of working mothers and early child development was influential in making the argument for increased maternity leave. Another study on the impact of assets, such as savings and investments on future life chances, played a major part in the development of assets-based welfare policy, including the much-debated 'Baby Bond'.
