Your Role

As a Growing Up in New Zealand participant, you’re an important part of the largest longitudinal study in New Zealand history!

You’re one of more than 6,000 young people who share their information to help inform research and policy to improve the wellbeing of all New Zealand children and their whānau.

We want to thank you and your family for being involved in the study and for providing unique insights about what it’s like to grow up in New Zealand today. Without you, this study wouldn’t be possible.
