Life-stages - Introduction

Children aged 0-4 (infants and pre-school age) are a very important population group as they represent the next generation. This group are large consumers of local government services, such as maternal and child health services, child care and libraries. Living conditions in the formative years of life are very important indicators of future life outcomes, so this group is often of particular interest to local government.

Derived from the Census question:

'What is the person's date of birth (or age last birthday)?'

Children aged 0 to 4 years
