The UK Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) is a nationally representative longitudinal survey that follows 19 244 children born in the UK in 2000–2002. The sample is geographically clustered, and is stratified to over-represent areas of England with relatively high proportions of ethnic minorities and high levels of child poverty, as well as areas in the three smaller countries of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Baseline interviews were conducted when the children were approximately nine months old, and follow-up interviews were conducted when the children were around 3, 5, 7, 11 and 14 years old. In this study, we focus on Sweep 6 which was collected when cohort members were around 14 years old. We also relied on variables collected in Sweep 1, when cohort members were aged around 9 months, to account for characteristics that could confound or mediate the relationship between MAR and our outcomes. The MCS includes detailed information about the demographic, health and socio-economic characteristics of the respondents and their families. The study also collects rich information on parenting, relationships and family life from resident parents.
