Brief description The Kids in Communities Study is an ongoing cross-disciplinary international collaboration of experts from Canada and Australia established to address the limited knowledge, yet potential benefit, of community level factors (e.g. physical, social, service, governance, and socio-economic) influencing early childhood developmental outcomes, which may then be amenable to change. Following a successful pilot of measures, this next phase proposes a mixed methods approach to investigate up to 10 communities across Australia, focusing particularly where children are developing unexpectedly well or poorly when compared with socio-economics of their suburb, to determine factors (or indicators) related to positive community level differences.
