The Children’s Headline Indicators (CHI) are a set of 19 indicators endorsed by the Australian Health Ministers’ Conference, Community and Disability Services Ministers’ Conference and the Australian Education, Early Childhood Development and Youth Affairs Senior Officials Committee in 2008 (first reported in 2009). They are high level, measureable indicators that identify the immediate environments as particularly important to children’s health, development and wellbeing. The CHI are presented from 2006 to 2016 and are grouped into 3 broad topic areas—Health, Early learning and care and Family and community.
