The Growing Up in Scotland study is very much a collaborative venture. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our colleagues in NatCen's operations and computing departments and to our team of interviewers and supervisors for conducting the interviews with such dedication and professionalism.

We would also like to thank everyone involved in the preparation of this report - particularly Wendy van Rijswijk, Tom Spencer and their colleagues at the Scottish Government who provided feedback on early drafts.
