Young Lives India Leaflet
Since 2002 we have followed 3,000 children (2,000 Younger Cohort and 1,000 Older Cohort) in 20 sites across the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Our pro-poor sample covers almost equal numbers of boys and girls, located in rural as well as urban communities.
These groups provide insights into every phase of childhood and shed light on various facets of child development across generations.
There are three main research components in our study:
- Quantitative research: five survey rounds of all 3,000 children, their caregivers and community leaders.
- Qualitative research: in-depth interviews with a smaller group of 48 children, their peers, and parents.
- Two school surveys i.e. primary and secondary conducted in private and government schools.
Young Lives India is a collaborative research project with the Centre for Economic and Social Studies Hyderabad (CESS), Sri Padmavati Mahila Visvavidyalam (Women’s University), Tirupati (SPMVV) and Save the Children India.
