The children were born during the first week of March, 1946, and have been investigated periodically ever since, though only the first five years are described here. The survey is sponsored by the Institute of Child Health (University of London), the Society of Medical Officers of Health, and the Population Investigation Committee. The information used in the survey was collected by the staff of health departments throughout the country. The first section of the book paints the children's home background and their changing circumstances during the survey years, in order to provide the picture against which growth and health are subsequently discussed. Social class differences, both in growth and health, form the subject of the second and third sections, which also include special studies of accidents and of children admitted to hospitals. The discussion centres on the relative importance of environment and maternal care, in causing the considerable differences still founded between the social classes. The final section covers a number of special topics, such as the use actually made of the welfare services, the extent to which young children are separated from their parents, either temporarily or permanently and the important question of mothers with young children taking outside jobs. In each case the authors seek the effects on the children-to see whether they suffered if their mother failed to take them to welfare centres, or whether they showed any physical or emotional ill-effects if they were separated from their parents. The book ends with a study of the growth, health and development of premature children.
