Growing Up in Scotland started in 2005, with two cohorts: a “Birth” cohort and a “Child” cohort. The Birth cohort consists of around 5,000 children born in 2004/5. The Child cohort consists of around 3,000 children who were born in 2002/3. There is now also a second Birth cohort of children born in 2010/11.
