Most counties had two schools in the sample, with additional schools from more populated counties. A further 100 young people participated in focus groups and interviews, designed to gain insight into the additional needs of young people with disabilities and disadvantage.

The Development of a National Set of Child Well-Being IndicatorsAdobe PDF format document

A national set of child well-being indicators was developed by the National Children's Office (NCO) in consultation with policy-makers, service providers, academics, parents and children themselves. The rationale for developing these indicators is linked to evidence-based policy-making and reflects national and international trends. This report is a ground-breaking piece of research, which will prove useful in assessing how well Irish children are doing across all aspects of their lives. The indicator set is based on the 'whole child perspective' as defined in the National Children's Strategy, which allows for a broad and holistic understanding of children's lives. In addition to this report, two other supporting documents will be of interest: Children's Understandings of Well-Being (Nic Gabhainn and Sixsmith, 2005) and The Delphi Technique: A Methodology to support the development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators (Hanafin and Brooks, 2005).
