I’d personally like to thank each and every one of you for your support of Superu in 2016. It’s been a busy year for us; and we will have lots more research to share with you in 2017.
Our office will close on Friday 23 December 2016 and reopen on Wednesday 4 January 2017.
We wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and festive season, and we look forward to working with you in 2017.
Meri Kirihimete koutou mā.

GUiNZ is a longitudinal study of child development that follows a sample of children born between 2009 and 2010 in Auckland and Waikato.
Superu recognises that researchers need to connect with GUiNZ data to help tackle key challenges that New Zealand children and their families face today. The Superu Children and Families Research Fund ensures that researchers have the access and funding they need to do this.
