The Australian Early Development Index 2009

The Australian Early Development Index 2009

The AEDI was completed nationally for the first time between 1 May and 31 July 2009 and information was collected on 261,147 Australian children during their first year of full-time school.

A follow-up data collection occurred in some small areas in 2010 and localities with small numbers of children were combined so that more communities could have their results released. In 2011, 97.8 per cent of Australian communities had their AEDI results released.
