z-proso Public Symposium 2018

Symposium (26/10/2018)

The Zurich Project on the Social Development from Childhood to Adulthood (z-proso) is an internationally important longitudinal study that investigates the life-course of 1,675 children since their admission to the first year of Zurich’s primary schools in the autumn of 2004. In September 2018, the eighth wave of data collection was completed, with the then seven-year-old children now in their early twenties.

The detailed data collected over 15 years provide an in-depth insight into the life course of young people at the beginning of the 21st century. From the beginning, the main focus of the study related to the causes and consequences of aggression and victimisation.

Other issues have been added as the study progressed, including young people’s perception of law and police work, the causes of substance abuse and the dynamics of mental health.
