In the 1970s, what were Britain's sixteen-year-olds like? How many play truant from school? What were their hopes and plans for the future? And how did they get on with their parents? This historic report presents the answers to a wide range of questions about 1970s teenagers, based on the responses of some 14,000 young people, their parents, teachers and doctors throughout Britain. This ebook is based on information from the National Child Development Study, which charts the lives of children born in Britain during one week in 1958. This is the twelfth book to be written about these young people since their birth, and includes a summary of the preliminary findings.
