State of Victoria's Children Report

​Annual State of Victoria’s Children reports provide a comprehensive picture of the health, wellbeing, learning, safety and development of Victoria’s children and young people.

2016 Report

The State of Victoria’s Children 2016 report focuses on the theme of why place matters for Victoria’s children and young people. It looks at how outcomes can vary for our younger generation depending on where they live, from the perspective of their economic environment, early development, educational achievement, health and wellbeing and feelings of safety.

The report brings together a breadth of data and evidence from across the Victorian Government and a number of other sources to highlight the importance of place on a child and young person’s development. It also includes information on a number of place-based interventions currently in place across the state which are making a difference for children and young people in those communities.
