Researchers from University College London’s Centre for Longitudinal Studies analysed data from the Millennium Cohort Study. This study collected information from nearly 10,000 people across the UK on a range of risky behaviours – including antisocial behaviour – when participants were 17 years old in 2018/19. Data on some of those behaviours had also been collected at ages 11 and 14.
