Aspirations data (WINGS project)
Contains cross-sectional data collected from September to December, 2015. Data is from 8 districts across 5 states in eastern and central India, and was collected to assess the impact of a nutrition-behavior change communication intervention by an NGO called PRADAN. PRADAN works to form and strengthen women's self-help groups. In each of the 8 sample districts, 2 blocks with PRADAN presence were purposively selected, one receiving the standard PRADAN livelihoods interventions and the other receiving livelihoods interventions plus a nutrition-intensive component. In addition one 'control' block with no PRADAN presence was also selected, making a total of 3 blocks per district. From each of the 2 PRADAN blocks, 5 villages were randomly selected from the complete list of villages where PRADAN was operational. From each control block 7 villages were randomly selected from the complete list of villages. Finally, 20 ever-married women between the age of 15 and 49 were randomly selected from each village. The achieved sample size was 2744 women from 136 villages in 24 blocks across 8 districts. The women's dataset contains information on questions that were administered to the respondent woman from the household. This dataset has one observation per household. In addition, information on education was collected for all children in the household. The children's dataset merges the women's dataset with this information on child education. As a result the children's dataset has more than one observation per household. The variable uid uniquely identifies the household and allows the user to link the women's and children's datasets.
