Overview: The Wave 13 report will provide an overview of new material covered in Wave 13, in the context of the LSIC study overall. Feature articles will present findings that draw on the longitudinal nature of the study, be relevant to current policy and programs and highlight the strengths of study participants. It is expected that a consideration of all the waves of the study will be given, to contextualise the Wave 13 findings longitudinally where possible. Consultation with stakeholders, including members of the LSIC Steering Committee, the DSS and the National Indigenous Australians Agency will shape the analyses to be conducted by the Panel Member and the final content of the report. The final Wave 13 Summary Report will be made available to policy makers and data users via the DSS website for 'Footprints in Time: The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children'.
