Where do I find more information?
- Australia’s Welfare 2019 and Australia’s Health 2018 touch on a broad range of data gaps that impact reporting on the wellbeing of children.
- The AIHW’s discussion paper, Scoping enhanced measurement of child wellbeing in Australia discusses opportunities for enhancing measurement of child wellbeing, focuses primarily on the national data and information landscape.
- A range of standalone AIHW reports highlight how linking across data sources can provide information on the pathways and outcomes of children in priority populations:
- Young people in child protection and under youth justice supervision: 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2017
- Young people in child protection and under youth justice supervision 2014–15
