This questionnaire is for completion by the original cohort participant, born between 1990 and 1993.
The data you provide will be available to researchers across the world and will help in answering important questions on human development, behaviour, health and disease.
Please remember that your answers to all these questions are confidential and will be processed using a unique ID number. All your personal details will be removed by Children of the 90s staff and researchers will not be able to link your answers back to you. Your data will only be shared with approved researchers for research that has been approved by Children of the 90s. This questionnaire has been approved by the Children of the 90s Ethics and Law Committee.
Answering the questions
Some questions may seem very similar to each other. This is because the combination of answers gives a clearer picture than one single answer. There may be questions that seem a bit strange or don't apply to you because they are about specific feelings or problems. We would be very grateful if you answered all the questions but we understand if there are some that you either prefer not to answer or are unable to answer. Please just leave these questions blank. There are no right or wrong answers.
Help with completing the questionnaire

Vouchers and prize draws

Whether you return your questionnaire complete or incomplete, we will also enter you into a prize draw to win one of three iPad tablets. To be entered into the prize draws we must have received your questionnaires/tasks by 5 pm on Tuesday 31 March 2020. If you win, we will contact you within two weeks using the contact details on your database. You can update these online. You will receive your prize up to six weeks after the draw has been held.
