Global estimates and trends 2000-2012

This report follows the Global Report series on child labour under the follow up to the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. Its focus is on the presentation of the new fourth round of child labour estimates for 2012 and to identify the trends from 2000 to 2012. The estimates are based on refined estimation techniques fully comparable with the ones for 2000, 2004 and 2008 rounds.

The Report is divided into four parts. Chapter 1 presents the main results of the newest estimates and trends as well as a brief overview of the driving action behind the results. Chapter 2 provides the details on the newest estimates for the year 2012. Chapter 3 presents a dynamic global picture updating the trends for the period 2000-2012. Chapter 4 sets out some pointers on the way forward. The publication of this Report is timed to provide input into the III Global Conference on Child Labour being held in Brasilia in October 2013.
