Round 4 Findings

Round 4 findings

The sample

The children were sampled in geographic clusters, which were selected through a semi-purposive approach. Within each cluster, children were randomly selected.

The sample size of the Younger Cohort  (2,000 children) was considered an appropriate number given the duration and scope of the study. It was also considered to be sufficiently large for statistical analysis in general, allowing for the detection of moderate-sized differences between sub-groups of children. The Older Cohort sample  was selected for comparison and to help us with developing questionnaires and survey instruments.

The attrition rate to date has been low compared to other longitudinal studies: 2.6% for the Younger Cohort and 4.3% for the Older Cohort between Round 1 and Round 4.
