The Royal Children’s Hospital National Child Health Poll is a quarterly, national survey of 2,000 Australian households shedding new light on the big issues in contemporary child and adolescent health – as told by the Australian public.
The poll’s structure and focus combines the rigour of academic discovery with the timeliness and reach of online quantitative research, to deliver significant new knowledge about the health, wellbeing and lives of children and young people in contemporary Australia.
Uniquely, the poll consistently puts the voice of Australian families and communities at the heart of the conversation about child and adolescent health. It aims to inform national discourse, health priorities and policy formulation, and stimulate further research into the new and emerging health issues facing Australian children and teenagers, and their communities, today.
The poll is funded through The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. The project protocol has been approved by The Royal Children’s Hospital Human Research Ethics Committee.
