Formerly known as the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE), Next Steps is a longitudinal study which followed a sample of around 16,000 people born in 1989/1990. Participants were interviewed annually for seven waves until they were aged 19/20 in 2010, and then again in Wave 8 at the age of 25. The information collected during Waves 1–7 of the study covered family background and parents’ employment status, young person’s characteristics, attitudes, experiences and behaviours, education and schooling.
The Victorian Cancer Registry was established in 1939. This Registry is the longest running comprehensive cancer registry in Australia and among the oldest continuously operating registries in the world. Currently, about 240 hospitals and 30 pathology laboratories notify the Registry of cancer cases. The Registry folks can work with researchers to recruit patients with cancer for research projects. They support research which fosters improvements and innovations in cancer prevention, clinical practice and cancer service delivery.
