The persistence of large inequalities in health, disease and premature mortality between people with a different socioeconomic position is one of the main challenges for public health. Improving early child development and education is part of WHO's main strategy to tackle health inequalities. However, the mechanisms underlying socioeconomic inequalities in early child development and education are understudied.
The overall aim of this project is to: (i) describe socioeconomic inequalities in cognitive and social-emotional development outcomes and school-related outcomes at age 12, and the underlying trajectories of inequalities in these outcomes; (ii) examine the role of family, neighbourhood, school, and peers-related conditions in explaining these inequalities and trajectories; (iii) investigate the impact of developmental and school-related outcomes at age 12 on behavioural outcomes at age 15. Data will come from the Generation R birth cohort study in Rotterdam, which will be linked to neighbourhood level and school-level data from external sources.
