About LSIC
Footprints in Time: The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) started in 2008, and since then followed two cohorts of children: the younger cohort of more than 900 children who were aged around 18 months in 2008, and the older cohort of 700 children who were aged around 3½ years in 2008.
Information is collected annually on a broad range of topics including:
•             Child physical and mental health
•             Child social and emotional development
•             Child cognitive development and learning outcomes
•             Children’s activities and home environment
•             Family characteristics
•             Primary carer education, employment, mental and physical health
•             Culture and language
•             School information (collected from parents, children and teachers).
More information about LSIC, including publications, data documentation and how to apply for the datasets can be found at www.dss.gov.au/lsic.
