Increasing demand for life course data and life course findings requires developments in methods of modelling life course trajectories and analysis of life course data. This chapter illustrates the progression of ideas in epidemiological life course studies, and the main strands of thinking about how risk develops and is modified. Innovative methods for obtaining life course data are described, and the reasons for development of new sources of life course data are outlined.

Keywords:   life course concepts, causal models, data sources, life course trajectories
