Psychological Impacts Stream: Analysis of the key quantitative outcome variables from the first year of Schools Study data collection

Research output: Book/ReportOther ReportResearch

Abstract

The Schools Study component of the Hazelwood Health Study aims to determine whether exposure to smoke from the mine fire is associated with psychological trauma and distress in school aged children. The analyses, described in this report, focus on participants’ scores on the Children’s Revised Impact of Event Scale (CRIES) and any changes in their average National Assessment Program in Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) scores before, and after, the mine fire event.
