This webinar is the third and the final one in our series on Operationalisation and Measurement of the Capability Approach using various types of data. In this webinar, we discuss the dynamics and the challenges involved in operationalising the primary data. While collection of primary data entails greater autonomy in collection of data, the sample size becomes a limitation and issues regarding representativeness of the data are more acute. Our speakers discuss the frameworks they employed and how they attained balance between the two concerns. With one study being based on households with children in Rome and the other focusing on women in Sri Lanka, the webinar offers interesting comparisons on the notions of subjective well being and deprivation.
