What have we learned?

The information collected by Child of the New Century (CNC) has helped researchers to understand how our lives are shaped by many different factors as we grow up. Findings from the study have shown how early circumstances and events can influence our physical development, our behaviour and even how well we do at school.

CNC is helping to make life better, both for young people today and for future generations. Research based on the study has had a real impact on society and helped politicians, teachers, doctors, nurses and others improve services for children and young people.

On these pages you can find out what we have learnt about different areas of your lives, and how CNC has made a difference.
