The latest report from the Growing Up in New Zealand (GUiNZ) longitudinal study was released at a seminar in Wellington on 14 June 2018.
The report - Growing Up in New Zealand: Transition to school - provides unique insights into how children in the study are transitioning to primary school and the factors associated with a positive and negative transition from their mothers’ perspectives. GUiNZ is a unique study which provides a contemporary, population-relevant picture of what it’s like to be a child growing up in New Zealand in the 21st century.
The seminar was co-hosted with the Ministry of Social Development.
