Violence Against Children Survey 2011 - Zimbabwe: Community Perception

The Violence Against Children Survey Community Perception measure includes 2 items from the Zimbabwe National Baseline Survey on Life Experiences of Adolescents (NBLSEA, 2011). This measure assesses young people’s perception of trust in community members, and safety in their neighborhood. Violence Against Children Surveys are nationally representative household surveys of children and young adults aged 13 to 24 years. They are designed to measure the prevalence and circumstances surrounding emotional, physical, and sexual violence against males and females in childhood (before age 18). Navigational aspects (i.e., skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included, but can be viewed in the original questionnaire available here
