Note: Total population lifetime gains from a better childhood (per 100,000 individuals) in England.
Note: Distribution of lifetime gains from a better childhood (among 100,000 individuals) accross the lifetime income decile groups.
This is an interactive tool based on simulated data for by the lifecourse microsimulation model LifeSim, which simulates the lives for each child from birth to death in a British birth cohort of children born in year 2000. Full documentation can be found here.
The 'Individual Outcomes' tab allows you to enter child charactertistics, as well as various circumstances during childhood and young adulthood, and see how predicted lifetime public costs, health and wellbeing vary, according to the simulation.
The 'Improving Life Chances' tab allows to choose a set of adverse childhood circumstances to eliminate. It then calculates the long term benefits accross the population (on average and for population subgroups).
The estimates produced by this tool are simulations based on various sources of data. The predictions of the interactive tool are purely descriptive associations, and not based on causal analysis.
