1 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys Survey Design Workshop Household Questionnaire: Child Labour

2 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Goals World Fit for Children (WFFC) –Protect children against abuse, exploitation and violence. Under general protection nine strategies are mentioned to combat child labour Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) –The Millennium Declaration calls for the protection of children against abuse, exploitation and violence but no goal, target or indicator is included

3 Background Historically, there was no internationally accepted statistical definition of child labour. New Resolution concerning statistics of child labour adopted by the 18th International Conference of Labour Statisticians (ICLS) in The Resolution sets standards for the collection and analysis of data and calls upon all countries to develop a system of child labour statistics. The Resolution confirms the point of view by UNICEF that any type of work (paid and unpaid) by children should be considered in the measurement of child labour. MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

4 MICS Indicators # Child labour Percentage of children age 5-14 years involved in child labour Age 5–11 years: At least 1 hour of economic work or 28 hours of domestic work per week. Age 12–14 years: At least 14 hours of economic work or 28 hours of domestic work per week. Economic activity is defined as any paid or unpaid work for someone who is not a member of the household, or other family work

6 What we know One in six children in developing countries are engaged in child labour

7 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop

8 Methodological issues A 28 hour cut-off used for household chores Important to modify questions to capture childrens work for state / government organisations, if this is common in the country Is a shorter version of the module recommended by ILO – does not capture the most harmful types of child labour Child labour-education relationship is important – data allows analysis to show associations between drop outs and economic activity
