The study covered 17 states and 48 districts. Two blocks from each district were selected. Five schools from each block was selected. A village where the sample school was located stood selected as sample village for canvassing the schedules. From each school/centre 10 beneficiary students (5 boys and 5 girls) and their respective parents were selected. Further a dropout and three out of school children from the village were also selected randomly. From a block, a minimum of two and a maximum of three, main focus groups were chosen. Qualitative notes were taken to fill in the gaps. URL:[http://planningcommission.nic.in/reports/peoreport/peoevalu/peo_cmdm.pdf].
