Social Norms Regarding Adolescent Girls' Practices uses 8 items from the CARE Tipping Point Bangladesh baseline survey. It asks girls between 12 and 15 years of age about their perception of approval or disapproval among community members related to their movement and leisure activities.
1. If a girl goes to the bazaar alone
2. If a girl rides a bicycle for leisure (i.e. not to go to school)
3. If a girl plays football or other outdoor sport.
4. If a girl walks alone to visit her friend in her free time
The score ranges from 0 to 8 with higher scores indicating positive social norms.
