Children of the Children of the 90s (G2)

This page provides information about the ALSPAC-Generation 2 (ALSPAC-G2) study, which is known to participants as COCO90s (Children of the Children of the 90s study).

Many of the original ALSPAC participants (Children of the 90s) have now become parents, with others planning their family. ALSPAC-G2 is about recruiting this next generation so that ALSPAC is able to make a completely unique contribution to health science, by being able to understand how health, well-being and disease are passed through families.

Eligible participants

The diagram below illustrates who the ALSPAC-G2 eligible participants are and introduces the G0, G1, G2 labelling so that the subsequent recruitment numbers are understandable.

Future data collection

ALSPAC-G2 has strategic award funding until March 2019. If you are interested in data collection with any of the ALSPAC-G2 cohorts then following discussions with the project manager or PI an online proposal should be completed. Online proposals should be submitted by October for data collection to commence from April 1st the following year. 

When my study child was born I already had a 20-month-old daughter and I was keen to make sure that the girls were brought up to be as healthy as possible. I thought that Children of the 90s was a very important study and I was keen to take part in it. Now, 24 years later and a grandmother, I still do!
