A unique opportunity to study deprivation across three generations arose from the possibility of following up the thousand Newcastle families originally contacted in 1947. Good records have been kept on these families, and advantage was taken of these to examine, longitudinally, whether children who had grown up in deprived families were more at risk, for their own and for their children's functioning, in adulthood.
