    Growing Up in Ireland is the national longitudinal study of children. It tracks the development of two cohorts of children over time: Cohort ’08, most of whom were born in 2008 and formerly called the Infant Cohort; and Cohort ’98, most of whom were born in 1998 and formerly called the Child Cohort. The main objective of the study is to contribute to the development of policies and services to support children in Ireland by increasing the understanding of factors that enhance or undermine the wellbeing of children and families. The study’s conceptual framework draws heavily from Bronfenbrenner’s bio-ecological model which views the individual child as being an active agent whose development is influenced not only by the face-to-face interactions with individuals in his/her most immediate environment (termed the ‘microsystem’), but also by the wider community and circumstances (‘exosystem’ and ‘macrosystem’) that affect the child directly or through effects on the microsystem (‘mesosystem’). This report is concerned with the younger of the two cohorts in the Growing Up in Ireland study (Cohort ’08). It is based mainly on data collected from this cohort at five years of age in 2013, but also drawing on data collected when the Study Children were aged three and when they were nine months old. Summary findings from this cohort at age nine have been published. This new report provides a further, more indepth description of the circumstances of the children and their families when they were five years old.
