Child Health Indicators of Life and Development (CHILD) Project
The Child Health Indicators of Life and Development (CHILD) Project is a third-wave project in the European Union Community Health Monitoring Programme. It has undertaken a
thorough review of the domain of child health, and from this recommended a set of indicators
which cover health determinants, health status, and wellbeing of children. The process and
rationale, and an overview of the recommended indicators and suggested further research, are
explained in the main report.
The technical annexe contains a more detailed template for each proposed indicator. These templates are in a standard format recommended by the Commission’s officers, and include the definition of the indicator, further technical aspects, the justification or rationale for selection, and references citing the key supportive literature.
This section of the site contains some brief information on each indicator included in the CHILD project as well as links to places to go for the data and more information.
