Presentation title: A good childhood is a smart investment

Presentation abstract: Policymakers are implementing early-years interventions, hoping for long-term returns on investment. The talk will describe research that brings national register databases together with a four-decade birth cohort study. One-fifth of the cohort accounted for most of the cohort’s injuries, obese kilograms, cigarettes smoked, hospital nights, welfare benefits, fatherless child-rearing years, prescription fills, and court convictions. Study findings suggest that early-years interventions that enhance brain health could yield large returns on investment.
