Seminar: Project Metropolitan

"Project Metropolitan" is a unique longitudinal population study, including more than 15 000 children born in Stockholm in 1953, designed to answer the question: “Why do some get on better in life than others?” One of the main aims of the project was to study the long-term impact of conditions in childhood. However, in 1986, media started reporting about the study, making claims of people being secretly recorded. This sparked debates about personal integrity and the role of social sciences.

On January 28, Sten-Åke Stenberg, the author of the book "Born in 1953. The story about a post-war Swedish cohort, and a longitudinal research project" (available for free download) will give a talk about Project Metropolitan.
