For the purpose of illustration, we build a predictive risk model using variables that are observed prenataly or at-birth in the GUiNZ data. These are mainly economic and demographic factors, and are chosen because they are typically available in administrative data. We use a predictive risk model to identify children who are at the highest risk of being exposed to Adversities of Childhood Experiences (ACEs) by 54 months. Children are classified as “beating the odds” if they are in the highest 20% risk group based on the predictive risk model, but by age 54 months have not experienced a single ACE.(From the Policy statement).
