  1. Brochure: Children in Hazardous Work – Questions and Answers

    16 September 2013

    The ILO estimates that of the world’s 215 million child labourers, 115 million are involved in hazardous work, including 41 million girls and 74 million boys; 53 million are aged 5-14, and 62 million are aged 15-17. One concern is that the number of child labourers engaged in hazardous work has been increasing among the 15-17 age group. The highest concentration of hazardous child labour is in agriculture (59 %) followed by 30 % in services (e.g. domestic work, street-based work) and 11 % in industry (e.g. small workshops, mining, construction).

    Migration is a global phenomenon which is growing in scope and complexity. In 2010, some 214 million people — 3 per cent of the world's population — lived outside their country of origin. The majority of migrants cross borders in search of better economic and social opportunities. Of the hundreds of millions of people living outside their countries of birth, the ILO estimates that almost 90 per cent are migrant workers and their families.
