Launch of Round 4 Preliminary Findings in Delhi (18 Sept 2014)

Preliminary findings from Rounds 1 to 4 of the Young Lives survey will be launched at a special event in Delhi on 18 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 - 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.

We are starting with a launch event in Delhi on 18 September, chaired by Professor R. Govinda, Vice-Chancellor of the National University for Educational Policy and Administration (NUEPA) and attended by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford. The Chief Guest will be Ms Sinhushree Khullar, Secretary of the Planning Commission.
