Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC)
The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) follows the development of around 1,700 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families across urban, regional and remote Australia. The study provides a data resource that can be drawn on by government, researchers, service providers, parents and communities. It is one of the largest longitudinal studies of Indigenous people worldwide.
LSIC aims to improve understanding of the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, their families and communities to inform better policy and program development.
The LSIC data is available from the ADA Dataverse catalogue at: https://dataverse.ada.edu.au/dataverse/lsic
