Looking back what really made us happy? Learn more about this incredible study which looked at health, wealth and happiness through the years.

The Aberdeen Children of the 1950s study has followed 12,000 people who were born in Aberdeen in the 1950s. This unique study has collected information from childhood (for example school tests) through to adulthood (for example questionnaires about health). Researchers from around the world have used the study to investigate vital questions about what life experiences and circumstances do to our health, wealth and happiness. Marjorie Johnston, together with Krzys Adamczyk and members of the research team, will provide you with an overview of what this important study has taught us so far.
