Global Estimates of Child Labour

The current report, the fifth edition of the ILO’s quadrennial report series on global estimates of child labour, charts how far we have come and how far we still have to go to honour this commitment to ending child labour. The report describes the scale and key characteristics of child labour in the world today, as well as changes in the global child labour situation over time. It also discusses key policy priorities in the campaign to reach the 2025 target. The report, and the global estimation exercise that underpins it, forms part of a broader inter-agency effort under Alliance 8.7 (see next section) to measure and monitor progress towards target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals. (...)

The report is structured as follows:
Part 1 presents the main results of the global estimates on child labour and reviews trends. It reports levels and changes in child labour by region, age, sex, and national income levels. It also addresses the characteristics of child labour and the extent to which children in child labour are able to attend school. For the first time, the profile has been extended to include household chores and the amount of time children dedicate to them.
Part 2 discusses the road forward. It looks at key overall priorities in ending child labour and the main areas of policy focus for addressing them.
