The Bergen Child study (BCS) is a longitudinal cohort study that started in 2002 with the aim to follow children born in Bergen 1993 – 95 from early school age to end of high school.
In the study we asked children, their parents/legal guardians and their teachers to answer questionnaires. The study consists of four waves of data collection. The first three waves were at ages 8-10, 11-13 and 14-16 years. The final data collection wave was renamed "youth@hordaland", and was carried out in spring 2012, when the participants were 16 -18 years of age.
For the participants who agreed to register linking, youth@hordaland is linked to the Norwegian Adoption Register, the Norwegian Patient Register and the National Education Database.
The Regional Centre for Child and Youth Mental Health and Child Welfare (RKBU West), NORCE is responsible for the study, and it is approved by the Regional Committee for Medical Research Ethics, West-Norway, and the Data Protection Services.
The aim of the study is to gain knowledge that can contribute to better mental health care for children and adolescents. Other domains such as school functioning, family situation and social life are also included in the study.
