The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) commissioned Consulting Inplace to undertake an impact evaluation of MCS.

The evaluation focused on the extent to which research utilising MCS data has influenced policy and practice across the UK to date.

The MCS aims to chart the initial conditions of social, economic and health advantages and disadvantages facing children born at the start of the 21st century.

It aims to understanding the origins of social exclusion and contributing to a range of policy debates for example in:

  • education
  • health
  • parenting
  • employment.
