- In July 2015, we released the second report in our new 'Vulnerability and Resilience' series. While the first report, Exploring the Definition of Vulnerability for Children in their First 1000 Days focused on how we can identify children who are most vulnerable in early life,the second report, Transitions in exposure to vulnerability in the first 1000 days of life describes how transitions in and out of vulnerability effect children's early health and development.
- The 72-month ('Starting School') interviews will be starting from August 2015. More information about our data collection waves
- Since late 2014, we published five policy briefs on Nutrition and physical activity during pregnancy, Household safety, the children's Economic environment, Parental Leave and te Reo use. Policy briefs are smaller publications with evidence from Growing Up in New Zealand on a specific topic.
