Abstract Children are important to the Northern Territory, and there is a wide range of both general and specialised services to support their wellbeing and development. To be most effective, service providers require knowledge of the needs of children and of the major influences on their development. In August 2004, the Northern Territory began an initiative to assess the health, development, learning and wellbeing of children using The Northern Territory Child Health and Wellbeing Survey. This project had three components: a Parent Survey, completed by a parent or carer on behalf of a child; a Schools Survey, completed by a child's classroom teacher and school principal; and linkage of these surveys to administrative datasets maintained by the health and education departments. This is the second report from the project and focuses on the measurement of social-emotional wellbeing and learning outcomes by connecting information from teachers about individual school children with information from parents collected during a detailed telephone survey. This report will inform practice and policy development in health, community and education services for children.
