Young Lives Data – Video Abstracts

11 December 2020

Funded by the Economic Social and Research Council (ESRC), the aims of the Methodological Lessons and Learning project are to generate shared learning, strengthen capacity, and improve effectiveness in the conduct of longitudinal research in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). 

A key part of this is to highlight where and how Young Lives data have been used.  To do this, we are producing a series of video abstracts with authors who have used Young Lives longitudinal data in their research, asking them to reflect on their analytic decisions and strategies, and how these contributed to their overall findings.

Below you will find links to the video abstracts along with a brief introduction to the project/paper that is being discussed

  1. Accounting for Intergenerational Social Mobility in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, Fabian Koenings and Jakob Schwab

In this video abstract we hear from Fabian Koenings and Jakob Schwab who discuss their paper on social mobility within developing countries and how they use Young Lives data to present their conclusions.
