Snapshot 2012 full report, the tenth in the Commission’s Snapshot series, draws together data from a wide range of sources to compile a contemporary portrait of the health, safety and wellbeing of children and young people in Queensland. Where possible, data are supported by robust trend analyses to provide a longitudinal evidence base that can be used to inform policy and program development and facilitate shared understandings across sectors. The Snapshot 2012 key data booklet is also now available.
This year, a Snapshot Key Data: Children and Young People in Queensland web app for use on mobile devices is also being launched. This free app has been developed by the Commission to provide stakeholders with instant access to a wide range of information on issues relating to children and young people in Queensland. The web app acts as a quick and easy reference guide to statistical information on demographics, families, health risk factors, health conditions, early childhood education and care, education, deaths, child protection and crime and justice. It is also a great reference for people working directly with children and young people, as well as researchers, academics, Parliamentarians, policy and program developers and other people with a general interest in the health, safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
