The merits of collecting national longitudinal data are widely recognised but existing studies are not easily comparable as they contain different questions, are conducted at different times and on different age groups. It is, therefore, time for an input harmonised comparative birth cohort survey. The European Cohort Development Project has developed the design and business case for such a survey. This survey comprises a common questionnaire, common sampling and fieldwork procedures and will thus allow a direct comparison of the well-being of children as they grow up across Europe in different national contexts.

Gary Pollock is Professor of Sociology based in the Policy Evaluation and Research Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University, he has led two European Union-funded projects which have developed the business case and design for a Europe-wide cohort survey.
