Content:  Childhood is influenced and guided by health status, family, community, school and a host of other interconnected factors.  This project is an attempt to assemble more holistic data than is available to individual government departments or service providers.

We are linking de-identified individual data from Health, Education, Children and Families, the police as well as community level demographics.  The study covers all NT children born after 1993. Some early results about factors influencing early development (AEDC) and schooling (NAPLAN year 3) will be presented.
