Has YouthSave’s Ghana Experiment selected the right target population?
This YouthSave Research Brief focuses on the individual, social, and economic characteristics of youth and their families in the Ghana Experiment. The study uses a cluster randomized design with 100 schools randomly selected from eight of Ghana’s ten regions. The study sample comprises 6,252 youth and 4,576 parents and guardians of these youth.
The data reveals that socioeconomic characteristics of youth and their households in YouthSave Ghana differ from those of the general Ghanaian population.
