Young Lives is an international study of childhood poverty, involving 12,000 children in 4 countries over 15 years.

It is led by a team in the Department of International Development at Oxford in association with research and policy partners in the 4 study countries: Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam.  

Young Lives gathers and analyses data on how childhood is changing in diverse communities, especially through the impact of economic, cultural and policy shifts, by studying two age cohorts in each country.

UNICEF, the World Bank, Plan International, and Save the Children International, among others, are using Young Lives research to design childhood poverty-reduction policies in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
