New, innovative longitudinal datasets
:

A longitudinal dataset on a sample of young adults in Malawi, on
sexual relations, transitions into marriage, socio
-
economic status
(both prior to and after marriage), and the spread of HIV/AIDS.


In 2007 study investigators began to follow 1,183
unmarried young women and men in both semi
-
urban and rural
communities. MTM investigators collected data in short time
intervals, so that within a 26
-
month period, respondents were
interviewed

up to five
times. Upon marrying, new spouses
participated in the study. These design features enable MTM
researchers to capture events as they occur, effectively removing
important biases which plague research during this critical life
6


juncture.



The MTM study began collecting data from a sample of 1,
183 young women and men, aged 13
-
25, in 60 communities in the
district of Salima, located east of the capital Lilongwe and bordering
Lake Malawi. Surveys are conducted with "core" respondents and
with

heads of households. HIV biomarker data have been collected
at two rounds. Three sets of in
-
depth interviews have been
conducted, two with core respondents, and one with community
leaders. Market and health facility information in the study site are
colle
cted yearly. Finally, the MTM study tracks respondents who’ve
moved, which is a critical feature for a sample of this age, where
physical mobility is common and lack of tracking will increase
attrition. MTM's schedule and activities were:


1.


Househo
ld Surveys

are administered annually for
three years (2007, 2008, 2009).

Data are collected from household
heads on household
-
level characteristics, and at the individual
-
level. Once core respondents marry, background/family data are
collected from new sp
ouse/s; in a handful of cases where a core
respondent married and divorced in the time frame of the survey.
divorce information is collected.


2.


Partnership Interviews

(PIs) are administered roughly
six months following each Household Survey. Two rou
nds of PIs
have been conducted (in early 2008, and in early 2009). The PIs
collect detailed information on five areas: formation and
dissolution of unions; marriage characteristics; exchange between
partners; social capital; and economic shocks.


3.



C
ommunity, market price, and health facility
questionnaires

are administered annually, alongside the Household
Surveys (2007, 2008, 2009).
