Our data visualizations have been developed around the themes of: Nutrition; Gender; Education; Skills and Work and visualize snapshots and progressions across our survey rounds (Round 1 in 2002; Round 2 in 2006; Round 3 in 2009; Round 4 in 2013; Round 5 in 2016) for children from both our Older and Younger Cohorts across our study sites in Ethiopia, India (in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), Peru and Vietnam.
The data visualised is across all rounds of the Young Lives household child survey. For information on the school surveys, please click here. Also note that Young Lives has a pro-poor sample and rural and urban locations are not equally represented in the data. In each visualization, we will specify from which survey rounds the data visualized is drawn from, and which cohorts. For more information about the design and sampling of all components of the Young Lives study, including selection and representation by location, please visit younglives.org.uk/content/our-research-methods
We aim for visual coherency across our suite of data visualizations. We have adopted comparable self-select legends, drop-down selection boxes and more so permitting users to visualize our data at their own pace, to meet their own needs so permitting an exploratory experience. So keep clicking, hovering and scrolling to discover the extensive functionality of our data visualizations.
These data visualizations by no means canvas the entirety of Young Lives data but they offer an entry-point into our work and key areas of focus, mapped against the global sustainable development agenda. For those who are keen to extend this interested focus and access our data, please head here for information on access to our public archive. Note, also, that some of our visualizations include data from our fifth survey round which is not publicly available until June 2018. Do get in touch if you have any questions around this.
