This technical note describes the process of selecting, preparing and matching external climate data to Young Lives respondents’ locations to derive ex-post estimates of climate conditions at a community level in regions which traditionally have poor climate data collection capacity. The note also details how to use these matched data, specifically precipitation records, to assess experiences of anomalous conditions relative to historical mean conditions for each community. Finally, it briefly details the structure and content of the publicly archived dataset, and how this dataset may be used for further research.
