This article is condensed from Holla, Consumer Insight's biennial youth study that documents the changing trends of the youth of East Africa.  Using a sample of 1,200 youths per country, the study uses a structured questionnaire to talk to male and female youth aged 7 to 24, living in urban and peri-urban areas and collects data on their lifestyle choices, media exposure and usage, and last but not least, product usage habits.
