Young Lives in India: An international study of childhood poverty. Key findings.
Young Lives in India is being carried out in the state of Andhra Pradesh, where it has been following two groups of children: 2,000 children who were born in 2001/2 and 1,000 children who were born in 1994/95. The children were selected from 20 sites. Between the two rounds of survey in 2002 and 2006, the attrition rate across the whole sample was only 0.9%, which is very low for a study of this size. This report summarises preliminary key findings from the country report of the second round of quantitative research.
