The most recent survey took place when you were age 25-26, in 2015-16. We hope to contact you again at key points in your lives.
While you were a teenager, we surveyed you every year from the age of 14 to 20.
You can find out more on the ‘What have we learned?‘ pages.
This page is for the members of the public who have been invited to take part in the Next Steps Age 32 Survey Pilot. We will be launching the Next Steps Age 32 Survey later this year. Before we do this we will be conducting a Survey Pilot which will take place in June 2021.
Thank you to everyone who completed one of our three online COVID-19 surveys over the past year. We would like to ask for your help again. We are inviting everyone who completed one of these surveys to take part in a COVID-19 antibody test.
You had reached a quarter of a century! Age 25 is a big milestone in many people’s lives. A lot of 25-year-olds are faced with big decisions – be it about their careers, housing, families or finances.
Next Steps started following the story of your lives when you were in Year 9 in 2004. In total, 16,122 people have taken part in the study over the years. We visited you seven times while you were teenagers – from the time you turned 14 to when you reached age 20.
