First and foremost, the authors of the report would like to thank all the families who have given up their time to take part in Growing Up in Scotland (GUS) and have supported it sweep by sweep.
GUS is very much a collaborative venture. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our colleagues in NatCen's service 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 Liz Levy and colleagues at the Scottish Government who provided feedback on early drafts.
Responsibility for the opinions expressed in this report, and for all interpretation of the data, lies solely with the authors.
