Our impact evaluation sought to gauge the knowledge, attitudes, and practices toward healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy, demand for and uptake of contraceptive services, family planning, access to contraceptive and maternal health services, sexual health and counseling services provided for both married and unmarried adolescents in Mahadalit communities. Given the sensitive nature of the topic and its chief respondents, a major component of the study was dedicated to thorough tool review, pretesting and translation to the local language and dialect to ensure appropriateness and relevance followed by obtaining all necessary ethical approvals from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to data collection.
Outline India partnered with academicians from University of Pennsylvania, University of Toronto and University of Chicago to undertake a study on dowry trends among migrant, married men and its relationship to education patterns and property rights over the dowry.

survey tool, coding, translating the tools, recruiting and training field
workers, data collection, data cleaning, and management.
