Story of Our Children and Young People

The Story of Our Children and Young People is a comprehensive overview of the wellbeing of our children and young people. Forty-eight key indicators, mapped over six domains, measure wellbeing from the antenatal period to young adulthood. The Story also highlights case studies and cultural stories of wellbeing which begin to tell the many stories presented across our community.

Data across multiple measures of wellbeing for children and young people are presented not only for the Northern Territory as a whole, but for Greater Darwin and our five regional areas, providing a clearer understanding of the distinct characteristics of our children and young people. Together with the growing number of community stories, this provides an emerging network of information about children and young people to inform and guide policy, planning, decision-making and practice.
