History of maternal stress and depression and relationship with child development
One of the key founding purposes of the MatCH substudy is to investigate the history of maternal health and its link with child outcomes. This set of analyses will investigate the history of maternal depression and related characteristics and how this predicts child development. It will combine data from ALSWH along with new data collected on the children of the 1973-1978 cohort, along with linked data from the AEDC and NAPLAN. (Note: it is proposed to do a similar set of analyses with maternal perceived stress).
