The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) is an Australian Government Initiative.
It is a nationwide survey that shows how young Australian children have developed as they start their first year of full-time education. Find out more in the Introduction to the Australian Early Development Census video.
This video explains how the AEDC data is collected and then used to calculate vulnerability at a community level. The video explains the way in which the AEDC programme can track how communities are supporting children over time.
