JUVENILE JUSTICE NATIONAL MINIMUM DATA SET
The report, Juvenile Justice in Australia 2000-01 to 2003-04, is based on the Juvenile Justice National Minimum Data Set (NMDS), a joint project between the Australasian Juvenile Justice Administrators (AJJA) and the AIHW, and is designed to provide nationally comparable information on the juvenile justice system. It examines periods of time young people across Australia spent in detention and under community-based supervision and how those periods were managed.

GROWING UP IN AUSTRALIA: THE LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN
Growing Up in Australia: the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) aims to examine the impact of Australia’s unique social and cultural environment on the next generation and will further the understanding of early childhood development and inform social policy debate. The study commenced in 2004 with two cohorts of children-the first cohort aged 0-1 years and the second 4-5 years. Follow-up data collection from both cohorts will occur every two years until 2010.
The second wave of interviews for Growing Up in Australia is now underway, with the study returning to hear from children and families about the children's development and progress since the last interview.
