The Child Development Atlas maps indicators of child development across the state of Western Australia, available at different levels of geography.
Maps enable the exploration of relationships between developmental indicators and neighbourhood characteristics. Understanding the profile of development of children and young people in an area informs service planning and delivery.
The Child Development Atlas includes data from a range of local, state, and national sources to create community profiles of indicators of key child health, wellbeing, learning, and social outcomes. For more information see the List of CDA Indicators.
The five geographical areas used in the maps include the Australian Bureau of Statistics standard geographical regions of Statistical Areas 2 and 3, Local Government Areas, Health Regions and Regional Development Commission areas. Most, but not all, indicators are available at each level of geographical aggregation. More detailed information about the geographic levels is available on the Geographical Structures page.
