The BCS70 study members took a range of cognitive tests at age 16.

We use the BCS70 to examine how gender stereotypes and roles "imprint" on entrepreneurial propensities.
In terms of our independent variables, the occupational roles of a cohort member's parents in the original BCS70 1970 were coded as MOTHER_SE70 and FATHER_SE70 (both 1 = self-employed, 0 = otherwise).
(Among other things this has implications for how much it matters that the NCS and BCS70 second generation studies are confined to young parents).
The second cohort managed by CLS is the British Birth Cohort Study of 1970, now known as BCS70. It also started with all births in a week across the country.
So, while our findings suggest that there may be some movement toward redistribution, the division of labor may still be far from equitable and fair in the sense that housework is divided and performed "50-50." In fact, couples rarely use this breakdown as an "equity point" (Lennon & Rosenfeld, 1994) because inequity--as measured by the BCS70 questionnaire response category, "We share more or less equally," with less being the operative word--has been normalized (Coltrane, 2000).

In the 1970 cohort, it is not possible to identify grandparents from other relatives but nearly 39 per cent of children in the BCS70 aged between 0 and 4 years old were looked after by a relative.
Twenty-four per cent of the 0 to 4 year olds in the BCS70 were also reported to have gone to state nursery schools before starting school, but the most frequently reported pre-school provision for this cohort was the playgroup with 52 per cent of children (apparently) attending this type of setting (see note 6).
