    This is the first published report of the Growing Up in New Zealand longitudinal study. The information collected from the Antenatal Data Collection Wave has been collated and this report describes the cohort of mothers and partners and provides descriptive statistics that relate to the children of the Growing Up in New Zealand cohort before they were born. This report includes data on parental antenatal intentions (immunisation, feeding plans), and health behaviours in pregnancy (relating to diet, alcohol, smoking, and physical activity). This data will allow the researchers to determine what effect adherence and non-adherence to specific guidelines have on children’s outcomes at birth and as they grow up over time.

    1.1 Background. Growing Up in New Zealand was set up in response to a recognised need by New Zealand policymakers for more robust, contemporary, population relevant evidence to inform their efforts to improve the quality of young New Zealander’s lives. The Ministry of Social Development has been the lead agency responsible for commissioning and funding this study, with support from multiple other agencies including Ministries of Health, Education, Justice, and Research, Science and Technology as well as Statistics New Zealand, the Families Commission, Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs, Department of Labour, New Zealand Police, SPARC (Sport and Recreation New Zealand) and Te Puni Kokiri. The design and processes for this study were subject to an extensive, peer-reviewed development phase between 2005 and 2007. After agreement that the proposed design would meet the required objectives, the longitudinal study proper was launched as Growing Up in New Zealand in April 2008.
