How official and digital records are used in Children of the 90s' research

Children of the 90s supports ground-breaking research into the causes of the world’s most important health and social problems.

We follow our participants’ health and life events via data collected in questionnaires, clinic visits and other studies.

Important health and lifestyle data is gathered via participants’ official records, such as those held by the NHS, the education system and the Department for Work and Pensions.

Children of the 90s would now like to use other digital records to help us learn more about health and wellbeing. Digital records include store card data (e.g. data from a Tesco Clubcard or a Boots Advantage Card) and social media. If participants wish to take part, they can ‘opt in’ to share their data, including their store card data and social media.

Changing your mind

If you do not want Children of the 90s to use your official records in research, you can opt-out at any time.
