This document is a reproduction of a fieldwork guide produced collaboratively by an international team of researchers taking part in the Young Lives study. It is the manual that guided the second of four planned rounds of data collection in 2008 as part of a longitudinal qualitative research design. The longitudinal qualitative study is tracking 50 children in each study country, using a case-study approach to document their changing life trajectories over time.
This document was drafted in early 2008 before we embarked upon the second round of our research. We have checked and updated it, along with guides for the first and third rounds of research, ready for publication in this format in early 2013.
