Growing up in Ireland - Key findings: Infant cohort at 7/8 yeara

Creator:

Growing Up in Ireland National Longitudinal Study of Children

Subject Keywords: Child health, Development, Health behaviour, Stability, Well-being
Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Description:

This is the second in a series of Key Findings from the fourth wave of data collection from the Infant Cohort in Growing Up in Ireland.

The families of just over 11,100 infants were first interviewed between September 2008 and March 2009, when the child at the centre of the study was 9 months old. They were re-interviewed when the child was 3 years old and again at 5 years of age. In 2016, a fourth wave of data was collected from the child’s primary caregiver (mainly their mother) through a postal survey when the child was 7/8 years old.

This Key Finding focuses on mothers’ reports on the general health of the children at 7/8 years of age, their development and health behaviours, as well as stability and changes from the age of 9 months. Health status and behaviours are important for overall well-being, enabling development in other areas of the child’s life as well as for future health.
