ESRC's insight:

The Commission on Inequality in Education used findings from the 1970 British Cohort Study and the Millennium Cohort Study; both are carried out by the ESRC funded Centre for Longitudinal Studies.

Children of older mothers 'likelier to be more intelligent' | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it
Children born to older mothers are more likely to do better in intelligence tests than those born to younger women, new research has found. Children born in 1970 to mothers aged 25 to 29 were more likely to perform better in tests of cognitive ability than those born to mothers who were 10-years older. 
ESRC's insight:

Researchers studied data from three long-term ESRC-funded studies in the UK, the 1958 National Child Development Study, the 1970 British Cohort Study and the Millennium Cohort Study. Children’s cognitive ability was tested when they were 10 or 11.

Dick Stannard's curator insight, January 24, 2015 11:35 AM

Here are the results of a recent UK survey that are disappointing to Christians and also a bit scary when you see the whole story.

 

It surely tells us, generationally, that we Christians are not doing a good job of passing on our own Christian convictions.

 

This isn't the only time in history that a nation or region, including the U S, has seemingly forgotten its Christian roots.

 

But it may be a wake up call for revival if Christianity is to remain a bedrock part of our culture.
