This data was collected through field surveys conducted in all four provinces of Pakistan (Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Punjab and Sindh). Within the KPK province Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) could not be covered because of political insurgency in those areas at the time when survey was conducted. A questionnaire was structured, tested in pilot areas and revised for improvements based on feedback. With a team of 40 students from Balochistan University of Information Technology Engineering and Management Science (BUITEMS), Quetta, a survey was conducted in 43 urban and rural settings during the months of August to December, 2009. Using multistage stratified random sampling design, 963 heads-of-household were interviewed and data on a total of 2,496 children were collected.
