Kwinana AEDC Data
The 2015 AEDC data for the City of Kwinana showed improvements across all five domains, which has been a consistent development since 2009. However, Kwinana still has a significantly higher proportion of children developmentally vulnerable and developmentally at risk when compared to all of Western Australia and the National results. In 2015, 1 in 4 children were presenting as developmentally vulnerable in one or more domains, an improvement from 1 in 3 in 2009. The most improvement occurred in the language and cognitive domain; while physical health and wellbeing, social competency and emotional maturity show the highest levels of developmental vulnerability.
