What is Next Steps?

Next Steps is one of the biggest and most important studies of the generation born in 1989-90 anywhere in the world. It began following 16,000 young people who were in Year 9 in 2004 at state or independent secondary schools across England.

Age 32 Survey

The Age 32 Survey is now underway! We'd like you ask you about your life now and how things have changed for you over the past few years. We’ll be inviting you in phases, so some of you won’t receive your invitation until next year.

Understanding the impacts of COVID-19

We asked you and participants in four other studies to take part in a series of online COVID-19 surveys, so we could understand how the pandemic has impacted different generations. Discover some of our findings.
