Partner violence in the Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC)
The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) has interviewed the families of between 1,200 and 1,700 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children every year since 2008. In the first year of interviewing most children were either 1 or 4 years of age. They live in urban, regional and remote areas of Australia (see Figures 1 and 2). While all of the children in the study are Indigenous, not all the primary carers or their partners are Indigenous.
