Growing Up in New Zealand

More than 6,000 New Zealand children and their families are at the heart of Growing Up in New Zealand - this country's largest contemporary longitudinal study of child development.


The University of Auckland study has been following the lives of these children since 2009 and 2010 - before they were even born.


We visit the children and their parents around every three years to gather vital information to build a picture of what it's like to be a child growing up in the complex world of 21st Century New Zealand.


Our 6,000 children reflect the ethnic and socioeconomic make-up of New Zealand today, so provide us with an accurate representation of the diverse experiences of our tamariki.


The Growing Up in New Zealand study will continue to connect with our cohort until the children grow into adulthood and are at least 21-years-old.
