This is the first time you have been asked to give your own permission to add information about you.
Your parents have previously been asked for their permission to add some of your health (up to age 14) and education (up to age 16) records to the information that we have collected about you as part of the study. We also asked them for permission to add your siblings’ health and educations records – if relevant, as well as their own health and economic records. Most of these permissions were collected at the age 7 survey. Your parents were also asked for permission to link to maternity and birth records when you were a baby.
