Growing up in New Zealand - first report published

The Before We Are Born report is the first report released from the Growing Up in New Zealand study - a new longitudinal study of New Zealand children and families which is being conducted by the University of Auckland under a funding agreement with MSD.

It provides results from the first wave of fieldwork, based on interviews with nearly 7,000 women in late pregnancy and around 4,400 of their partners in the Auckland/Waikato region.

The report is available on the University of Auckland website.
