AEDC - Vulnerable on One or More Domains (SA2 Modified) 2009-2018

This dataset contains information about children that are vulnerable on one or more domains of the Australian Early Development Censuses (AEDC) from 2009 - 2018. The data is based on modified 2016 Statistical Areas Level 2 (SA2) boundaries.

The AEDC is a population-based measure of children's development as they enter their first year of full-time school, and takes place nationally every three years. It looks at five domains of early childhood development: physical health and wellbeing (plus three health sub-domains), social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive skills, and communication skills and general knowledge.

For more information visit the AEDC website: http://www.aedc.gov.au.

Please note suppression of AEDC data occurs when one or more of the following have been met:

  • Three or fewer children had been assessed
  • Fewer than fifteen children had valid AEDC scores
  • Less than two teachers had completed AEDC instruments for children in that location
  • AEDC instruments were completed for less than 80% of all non special needs children

Additional minor suppression's have occurred where necessary to preserve confidentiality of related suppressed cells.

Please Note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data: https://www.aedc.gov.au/data/downloads.
  • Some AEDC results were captured across two SA2 regions, AURIN has created a custom geometry combining the relevant SA2 boundaries for these results.
  • APY Lands (SA2 code 41138) results for "Developmentally Vulnerable (N) 2018" had a value of ">=3" in the original data, it has been assigned a value of 3 in this dataset.
  • APY Lands (SA2 code 41138) results for "Developmentally Vulnerable (%) 2018" had a value of ">=90" in the original data, it has been assigned a value of 90 in this dataset.
