25/02/22 – New data tables in the Data section of Australia’s children present updated data related to the information domains: Health, Education, Social support, Housing and Justice and safety. These updates are broader than simply updating the previously released tables. The web report text was last updated in December 2019.
Childhood is an important time for healthy development and learning, and for establishing the foundation blocks of future wellbeing, but it is also a time of vulnerability. While a positive start in life helps children to reach their full potential, a poor start increases the chances of adverse outcomes for the individual, society and possibly future generations.
Australia’s children examines the most recent data on children and their families across the 7 domains of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare people-centred data model—health, education, social support, household income and finance, parental employment, housing, and justice and safety.
The report shows that most Australian children are healthy, safe and doing well, but there is scope for further gains in some areas. It also includes some data collected directly from children giving them a voice on their wellbeing.
