Ecuador - Showing Life Opportunities: Rapid COVID-19 Response Survey 2020

Primary tabs

The COVID-19 pandemic closed schools around the world, forcing school systems and students to quickly attempt remote learning. We conducted a rapid response phone survey of over 1,500 high school students aged 14 to 18 in Ecuador to learn how students spend their time during the period of quarantine, examine their access to remote learning, and measure their mental health status.

Series Information: 
The baseline Ecuador Showing Life Opportunities Survey was conducted in 2019 and is available here: https://microdata.worldbank.org/index.php/catalog/3718
Universe: 
Our sampling frame for the phone survey consisted of 4,163 students in 177 classes in 88 schools in Zone 2 of Ecuador.
Primary Investigator Name, Affiliation: 
David McKenzie (World Bank)
Sampling Procedure: 
In partnership with the Ministry of Education of Ecuador, Zone 2 (MINEDUC, Zona 2), we have an ongoing project that aims to teach high school students, in grades 10, 11 and 12, skills relevant for careers in entrepreneurship and science, using an online course called Showing Life Opportunities (DOV for the Spanish acronym) that was taught during class time using computers in schools. To be eligible for our project, schools had to have a reliable internet connection and a computer center with enough computers for one class to study. We cover 126 high schools in Zona 2, and more than 80% of students in the targeted grades. Our sampling frame for the phone survey consisted of 4,163 students in 177 classes in 88 schools. We stratified sampling by treatment status and class, to sample an equal number of students from both treatment arms and include students from all classes.
Response Rates: 
We successfully interviewed 1,552 students for an overall survey response rate of 64.3%. Only 10 students (0.4%) refused the survey, while the rest had phone numbers that were not answered (11.0%), were non-existent (5.4%), or went straight to voicemail (16.8%).
Questionnaires: 
An English version of the questionnaire is provided under the Documentation tab.
Other Processing: 
The sample consists of 14-18 year old students in Zone 2 of Ecuador.
