Abstract

Children develop best when raised in functioning and supportive families. The Growing Up Healthy in Families Across the Globe project aims to compare outcomes from UK/EU child cohort longitudinal studies to Aotearoa/New Zealand based studies.
The project brings together five of the most important studies (in terms of child development) with relevance to New Zealand. The Pacific Islands Family Study, Te Hoe Nuku Roa (Māori Families Longitudinal Study) and the triad of Growing Up studies (New Zealand, Ireland and Scotland) provide a detailed collection of data with high analytical potential for Māori, Pasifika and New Zealand European, but also with strong European comparators from very similar countries (Ireland/Scotland).
The symposium will provide an overview of the Growing Up Healthy in Families Across the Globe project, detail of the five individual studies (including highlights of findings from the studies) and an outline of the approach, strategy and initial findings from the investigation into harmonised analysis across the studies.
