In August 2018, Interim Commissioner Clements released an updated version of this report – The Health and Wellbeing of Tasmania’s Children and Young People Report 2018. This provides updated data, where more recently released data are available, and also includes some additional data.
The 2018 Report includes demographic data, data pertaining to early childhood and the transition to school, and middle childhood and adolescence, and data relating to targeted support for children and young people.
It is designed to provide individuals, community members, professionals, members of government and non-government organisations, and children and young people, with a picture of the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Tasmania.
The publication of the 2018 Report represents a contribution to the collective work necessary to improve the health and wellbeing of Tasmania’s children and young people.
Interim Commissioner Clements has also published a companion document, developed particularly for readers who are children and young people, called Tasmania’s Children and Young People in 2018. The purpose of this child-friendly version is to assist children and young people to engage with the story that the data tell.
