ACEs were common among the GUiNZ cohort. By the 54 month wave of the study (when children were around 4½ years old), over half (52.8%) of all GUiNZ children had experienced at least one ACE and 2.6% had experienced four or more. Our total count of ACEs is likely to be lower than the actual number experienced by GUiNZ children, as we only measured ACEs through the first 54 months of the study, and were unable to include measures for standard ACEs involving sexual abuse as this data is not collected by the GUiNZ study.
