Project Description:
Young Lives longitudinal survey began in 2001, with two cohorts, one born in 2000 (8,000 children) and one born in 1994 (4,000 children). Young Lives had planned to undertake a sixth round of quantitative fieldwork in 2020, now replaced with a Computer-Assisted-Telephone-Survey (CATI) comprising three phone calls. Call 1 (June-July 2020): Explain the phone survey this year and in-person gain consent for the main survey. Basic information collected: living arrangements; health of household members; labour and education effects of current emergency/lockdown; Covid-19 knowledge and behaviours. Call 2 (September-October 2020): Main survey based on a much-shortened version of the planned Round 6 survey, with a focus on labor market participation and skills, but new modules added on the impact of the pandemic on the household’s health and economic situation. Call 3 (November-December 2020): Will include a short list of questions from call 1&2 to collect some time-sensitive questions to better understand whether the respondent’s situation has changed in the meanwhile. The round 6 survey will take place in-person one year later than planned, in 2021 and assess medium-term impacts.
