There are a number of key groups to be acknowledged for their support of the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC): including the Australian Government who funded the study; all schools, principals, and teachers across Australia that participated in the AEDC; and each of the State and Territory AEDC Coordinators and their Coordinating Committees who helped to facilitate the AEDC data collection in their respective jurisdictions. We appreciate their time and commitment. The authors would also like to thank Dr. Joanne Tarasuik for conducting preliminary analyses for this paper.
