Our ground-breaking longitudinal research with 12,000 children growing up in 4 different countries has enabled us to develop new methods and approaches for studies of this kind.
Our mixed methods approach features a household and child survey, qualitative research and a school survey. Other key features are our cross-disciplinary approach, dual cohort, comparative design, and a holistic analytical model. For a comprehensive overview of our methods take a look at our Synthesis Report. You can also find out the lessons we have learned along the way in this reflective report on our Research Methods.
