Recueil de mesures repères – Partie III : La maternelle et la première année du primaire

This statistical review presents several hundred indicators concerning children in kindergarten and Grade 1 according to three indicators of household socioeconomic status: the highest level of studies completed by the mother, the household income level and an indicator combining the two. The indicators are grouped under various themes, such as living habits, health and development, the family environment, the physical and social environment and the teacher-child relationships and communication between family and school. The review is based on the data collected in the Québec Longitudinal Study of Child Development in 2004 and 2005. The information in the review can serve as useful points of reference in evaluating the progress made in the last decade in terms of the living conditions, health and development of young Québec children.
