Launch of Round 4 Findings in Hyderabad


Preliminary findings from Rounds 1 to 4 of the Young Lives survey will be launched at a special event in Hyderabad on Monday 22 September 2014.

Following the Round 4 household and child survey carried out in all four study countries in late 2013, we now have data on the Younger Cohort of children from infancy through to middle childhood, and the Older Cohort of children from age 8 until early adulthood. To publish early findings, we are producing a series of short fact sheets for the two states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana - focusing on Education and Learning; Nutrition and Health; and Youth and Development. These fact sheets aim to give a brief overview of children's outcomes at age 12  and age 19  looking at differences by poverty level, rural/urban location and gender.

The launch event will be hosted by the Centre for Economic and Social Studies. Chief Guests will be Professor Ch. Hanumantha Rao, Chancellor of the  University of Hyderabad and Former Member, Planning Commission, Govt. of India and Professor R. Radhakrishna,, Chairman, Centre for Economic and Social Studies and Former Chairman, National Statistical Commission.
