Child Labour: A Public Health Perspective

Charita L. Castro

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an overview of child labour data by discussing the historical context of data on children's work; available child labour data definitions; methodologies and sources; global estimates on children's work and some discussion on how data collection will be improved in the near future. The growth and development of statistical data collection on child labour has had many positive results, it has at last become possible to monitor accurately trends in child labour and the impact of policies and programmes to address child labour. Perhaps more importantly, the publication of accurate child labour statistics has assisted greatly in harnessing public and political support to reduce the negative consequences of children working.
