Numbers on the extent, characteristics and determinants of child labour are provided by the Statistical Information and Monitoring Programme on Child Labour (SIMPOC), which assists countries in the collection, documentation, processing and analysis of child labour relevant data. This page provides extracts of the available information. Refer to the SIMPOC page for a wealth of statistical tools, data and reports. These include questionnaires for child labour surveys, manuals and training kits on how to carry out child labour data collection, guidance on how to process and analyse the collected information, microdatasets and survey reports from around the world, research on statistical issues, and regular trends reports.
The report presents the methodological protocols used for the development of the 2020 ILO-UNICEF Global Estimates of Child Labour.
This Guidebook provides a detailed overview of the labour market indicators included in the Sustainable Development Goals Global Indicator Framework. It is intended to serve as a manual of best practices for calculating and interpreting the SDG labour market indicators, with a view to monitoring progress made at the national and international levels towards the achievement of the SDGs.
This manual complements the earlier volume on Sampling for household-based surveys of child labour brought out by within the framework of the ILO-IPEC Statistical Information and Monitoring Programme on Child Labour (SIMPOC) and contributes to survey methodology that goes beyond the particular subject of child labour. Thus, anyone interested in issues and practical solutions to problems such as sampling from imperfect frames or sampling difficult populations would benefit from the contents of this Manual.
These guidelines present specific guidance and tools for the design, implementation and analysis of quantitative surveys on forced labour of adults and children.
This manual presents a wide range of sampling techniques for household-based child labour surveys with a particular emphasis on sampling design and selection procedures.

Published for the first time jointly by the ILO and UNICEF, as co-custodians of Target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals, the report takes stock of where we stand in the global effort to end child labour.
