For children aged 3 to 6, data was collected directly from their parents. Parental consent was also obtained for respondents aged 7-15. A pilot study was run prior to the actual survey using measures to check the clarity of the questionnaire items, eliminate the ambiguities in the wording, instructions and layout, as well as validate the questions asked.
