3In most of the schools surveyed, all the students in the senior secondary classes participated with the exception of a few schools where the senior student population was very large. In such cases the students were randomly selected to obtain a fair representation of the student population. Both mixed and girls schools were surveyed.

4Primary groups targeted included

  1. Adolescent boys and girls in senior secondary classes

  2. School principals

  3. Guidance counsellors

  4. Home economics teachers


5A participatory approach was used to collect information from the primary target groups. Focused group discussion sessions, in-depth interview sessions and structured questionnaires were the instruments used.

6The study started in the third week of June, 1994. Preliminary visits to schools and a pretest of study instruments were carried out during the first and second weeks. The study was subsequently carried out and the questionnaires were administered with the assistance of the guidance counsellors in the schools. A total of three thousand three hundred and fifty-five questionnaires were administered.
