In an opening paper Leon Feinstein reviews methodological criticism of his influential research into the relationship between early cognitive development and socioeconomic grades, based on UK 1970 Birth Cohort Study data. The points he raises are then debated in commentaries by John Jerrim and Anna Vignoles, Harvey Goldstein and Robert French, Elizabeth Washbrook and RaeHyuck Lee and Ruth Lupton.

Leon Feinstein's response to these comments will be published in the next issue of the journal.
