The global Young Lives team planned to conduct Round 6 of our household survey in 2020. Unable to continue with this due to the pandemic and associated restrictions, the team moved to an innovative Phone Survey to provide rapid headline outcomes about the impact of COVID-19 on young people in our study countries. We published findings from the first of three calls in this survey in August. Headlines from these findings were also published by The Conversation here. Short reports from the Second and Third Call will be published later this year. These outputs aim to inform global and national policy responses to the crisis, and provide longer term analysis on the affect of the pandemic on young people’s transitions to adulthood in our study countries.
