As an inclusion, all youths belong to age group of 15-24 years and they are residents from three sub-districts (Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Jalalpur Peerwala) of Punjab, Pakistan that are already established least quality of life zones of Punjab. Data are audio and video tapped and transcribed carefully by veteran panel of field experts. To arrive at prudent findings, inductive thematic analysis is employed; findings are counter checked by two expert judges to avoid biases.
