This paper provides a review of the literature related to the theoretical frameworks and measurement issues that surround the study of child well-being and has been conducted in order to provide the basis for the development of small area level child well-being indicators in Australia .We identify three basic sets of frameworks used to conceptualise child well-being: those that originate from a health/well-being perspective, those that have come from a disadvantage perspective and those that focus on the child’s perspective. As well as giving an overview of selected Australian and international studies that have emerged from these perspectives, we cover a range of measurement issues related to child well-being, including the development of indicators and the rationale behind measuring well-being at a small area level. We summarise the range of domains used in recent studies of child well-being, demonstrating areas of consensus and divergence.
