Summary New epidemiological studies on children's health and wellbeing are essential to guide policy development. To ensure that these studies are based on the current conceptualisation of health, they should have a theoretical rationale for the selection of their domains. The scales used to measure each domain must be psychometrically sound, and also reflect the current conceptualisation of the domain. When selecting scales for each domain, child questionnaires must be considered, in addition to adult proxy measures. Through following these recommendations, researchers can ensure that their studies have theoretical and practical relevance. (non-author abstract)
