COVID-19 Phone Survey Headlines Report

This brief report provides a first look into the data collected during the first of three calls in Young Lives at Work's Phone Survey in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and highlights some of the key emerging findings.

The Young Lives Phone Survey aims to investigate the short and medium term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the health, well-being, transition to the labour market and education trajectories of young people in our study, tracked since 2001 and now aged 18 and 25.

This brief provides a snapshot of the current situation in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.  The second phone survey will ask in more depth about young people’s labour market experiences and how this is affecting their work life, their home life and their education.

The second phone survey call has been piloted and the fieldwork will take place during August-October 2020.
