Welcome participants!

Thank you

If you are a participant of Growing Up in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) – thank you for your contribution to the study so far.

You were one of 10,000 families invited to join the study, and you are a representation of what it is like to live, experience and grow up in Australia today.

Since 2004, thousands of young people, and their parents, carers and teachers, have been interviewed for the Growing Up in Australia study. Thanks to their (your) efforts, we are improving support for Australian children and their families in countless ways.
