McCoy, D. C., Black, M., Daelmans, B., & Dua, T. (2016). Measuring development in children from birth to age 3 at population level. Early childhood matters, (125), 34-39.
As early childhood development (ECD) is identified as an important target of the global development agenda, valid and reliable population-based indicators of young children’s development are needed. The aim of this article is to briefly summarise the current landscape of initiatives to develop cross-culturally valid and easy-to-use indicators that can be used for global monitoring and assess ECD among children from birth to 3 years of age at the population level.
