Presented by Associate Professor Karen Martin from Griffith University and Professor Maggie Walter from the University of Tasmania, the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) will present “The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children: Indigenous children growing up strong.”

The Footprints in Time: Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) is a cohort study of around 1600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from 11 sites around Australia. The study, conducted by the Department of Social Services, and guided by the Footprints in Time Steering Committee, is following the development of two cohorts of children: the baby cohort, born in 2006, 2007 and 2008; and the ‘Kids’ cohort, born in 2003, 2004 and 2005, to examine and identify the factors contributing to their individual and collective outcomes.
